I have seen so many articles about stereotypes of different majors, and well, it's time for me to jump on the bandwagon. Everyone has a sense of identity, and it is usually formed around college. In college, you spend a lot of time with people in your major, so naturally, you begin to talk, look, and dress alike. Shoes are a woman's best friend, and they can be personalized to you and their desired functionality. Let the majors speak for themselves.

1. Exercise Science

Nikes

Nothing screams "I wanna get paid to workout" quite like a fresh pair of Nikes

2. Anthropology/Sociology

Toms


Saving the world, one pair at a time.

3. Accounting, Economics, or Finance

Modest and sensible heels


Strictly comes in only black, navy, or nude

4. Marketing or Sales

Stilettos

You can sell just about anything in these.

5. ROTC or Criminology

Tactile boots

Ooo Rah!

6. Chemistry, Biology, or General Science

An extra pair of spill proof shoes


Not the most attractive, but you can stash them in your bag until lab.

7. Nursing

Sketchers


These shoes are just dying to take your vitals every 15 minutes.

8. Education

Danskos

Practical for standing at the front of the classroom and chasing kids at recess.

9. Environmental Science or Horticulture

Rainboots


Cute and easy to clean.

10. Political Science or Prelaw

Kitten Heels

Pairs perfectly with a nice pantsuit.

11. Psychology or philosophy

Oxfords


Most commonly found with a tweed jacket and spectacles to really give that prof vibe.

12. Dance

Ballet flats

Easy to change out of for dance class, but still obsessed with ballet.

13. Graduate School

Sperry's or penny-loafers

That Master's degree isn't going to earn itself; you must act the part of a grown up.

14. Undecided

Crocs

Wild, free, and accepting of all possibilities.

These shoes are just suggestions, but nonetheless, they will, in fact, help you succeed in whatever major you chose. Now go see if you can play a game of "guess the major" by looking at other peoples' shoes.

Yes, believe it or not your parents, friends, and teachers were right. College is SO much different than high school in so many different ways. Luckily, I just survived my freshman year so I was in your place literally a year ago today. Everyone tells you how different college is from high school but they don't tell you how and that's what I'm here for! Lets just start with the 1st difference....

1. A whole new world

You will feel like your in a new world because in a way you are. You will suddenly be surrounded by so many groups of people, new cultures, different lifestyles, different languages, everything is so NEW. Not only are you not going to class with the same people everyday that you have seen in the hall for years but you are going to classes with complete strangers from all over the states and sometimes even the world. You are suddenly going to have to share a room with a stranger or even a best friend which can also lead to some issues. But what is most important to know is that even though you feel alone the first few weeks or even months... trust me so does everyone else, its okay to feel overwhelmed its normal. We all have absolutely no idea what we are doing we are all just pretending like we have somewhat of a plan. I met most of my friends my freshman year through being completely LOST on campus.

2. Making new friends

One thing that you aren't taught how to do in high school or honestly by anyone is how to make friends. I knew most people in my classes throughout high school so when I started college I hardly knew anyone besides my roommate. It definitely took me a while to branch out and start making friends but I had to remind myself to put myself out there and eventually I met some wonderful humans. Remember to always be yourself and you will attract people that WANT to be your friend. It takes time but once again, you are not alone. It will look like people already have their group and stuff but everyone is struggling just as much as you most likely.

3. Responsibilities 

The new responsibilities you will have... get prepared, they will hit you like a truck or at least they did me. You will suddenly be responsible for cleaning your room, doing your laundry, feeding yourself, doing your homework, remembering specific dates, paying bills, honestly the list becomes never ending because you are slowly becoming an adult :(((( I remember a time when I wanted to be an adult, now all i want to do is be in kindergarten taking a nap LOL, Luckily I already was familiar with most of these things as were others im sure but there are also people that haven't had to do some of the things by them selves before which can be overwhelming at times. You will eventually fall into your own personal routine and get your own system going and things will become second nature. Don't be afraid of this, just be prepared in order to have the most stress free incoming year.

4. Academics...

The real reason we are in college in the first place. Yeah, here is where your parents and teachers were right... high school courses and college courses can be either very similar or very different. It honestly depends on what the course is and who your professor is but, for the most part, college courses and professors are much different. Professors do not like to repeat themselves and expect you to remember any important dates they mention. They expect you to write it down, no excuses. In high school you teachers would give you a break but that's not really how college works. Some professors may cut you some slack but most wont. Do NOT waste a professors time and remember that even though you are paying to go to school there, you can get kicked out in a heart beat so don't risk it. Refrain from talking in class, and show up!!! you can miss one thing and the next thing you know you have a 5 page paper due in a few days. Save yourself the stress and just pay attention for the whole 50 minute or hour and a half class you have.

5. Packing 

PACK LIGHTLY!!! I packed so much unnecessary clothes, decorations, etc, that I ended up not needing or never even using. Safe as much space as you can because your dorm room will definitely get cluttered fast and you will accumulate more things throughout the year. So, pack the clothes and decor you NEED. Try your best to not over pack (as hard as it is (; )

6. Homesickness

No one:

Every college student ever: "Ugh I can't wait to go to college I hate living here!"

You know we've all said it but you will most likely get homesick at some point. My house is not far from the College at all and even I still was homesick sometimes. Its one of those things that everyone goes through so remember you are not alone. Luckily, we live in the 21st century too so you can always video chat your fam and send them some love. Its okay to be homesick just try to get more involved and do things you would do if you were at your own house. I always try to bring a few things from home too just to look at and remind myself that I will see my family soon.

Freshman year was difficult for me to adjust to as im sure it was to others, so hopefully you keep these tips in mind this summer as you prepare for your first year of college! I am excited for you all to start this next chapter, welcome to the beginning of adulthood class of 2023!
