7 College Classes We've All Taken, As Told By Panera Bread Bagels

7 College Classes We've All Taken, As Told By Panera Bread Bagels

Because some college courses are as savory as onion bagels, sweet like chocolate chip bagels and just as blech as plain bagels--sometimes.

Need I say more? Let's jump right into it! Here are just a few types of common college classes as told by Panera Bread Bagels.

(Disclaimer: I will not be discussing Cinnamon Swirl and Raisin bagels in this article because they are just. So. Undeserving. Why would you ruin a perfectly good bagel with RAISINS? #sorrynotsorry)

1. Plain Bagel: GER classes.

GER classes are just that: general education requirements. They're the classes you have to take; the classes that start it all out, if you will. For those who crave flavor, who crave their own personal academic interests, GERs and plain bagels can come off a little bland, but for the rest of us they're always there to save the day (or your GPA). Like a plain bagel, GER classes are the foundations for all the classes that come next; you can't have a chocolate chip bagel without first having a regular bagel, can you? It all starts out plain, but it'll come to an end, eventually.

2. Everything Bagel: Freshman Seminars.

Because freshman seminar classes can literally be anything! These classes are ones you take for fun, to delve into a new topic about something, anything, everything. And who doesn't love learning about something they've always wanted to learn about? Who doesn't love everything bagels?

3. French Toast Bagel: Morning Classes.

Because you usually have these classes instead of breakfast, amirite? (Too bad these classes usually aren't as enjoyable as a french toast bagel...sigh.)

4. Whole Grain Bagel: That class you hate.

These are the bagels you hate. The bagels that always get eaten last out of a whole dozen. The bagels that even the health nuts put down in favor of cinnamon swirl raisin (and even that's gross.) Likewise, this is that class you end up loathing the whole. Dang. Semester. (*cough* calculus *cough*)

Just a few more weeks...

5. Sesame Bagel: That Class That Was Supposed To Be Something Else.

Seriously. You've heard the stories. Somehow, "Intro to Human Health" manifests itself into a physics class, and "Nutrition" turned out to actually be a chemistry class. Likewise, you probably bit into this bagel thinking it was an onion or everything bagel, and ended up being surprised. Too bad some of these classes aren't as pleasantly surprising, because chem is just nasty.

6. Blueberry Bagel: Your second choice class.

So you couldn't get that class that you really wanted. That's alright! Like a blueberry bagel, that's what this class is here for: to provide a soothing alternative that works just as well (and tastes just as great, because who doesn't love good ol' blueberry?)

7. Chocolate Chip Bagel: YOUR FAVORITE CLASS, EVER.

This class is the good stuff. It's all you ever wanted in a college class AND MORE. Just with a chocolate chip bagel, you might have been apprehensive at first--I mean, a chocolate chip bagel? The combination would have seemed a bit off to you. But after that first bite, you're just hooked. This class (and bagel!) has got you in for a good experience all-around.

And that's that! I know there's probably more college class stereotypes that I'm missing, and if so, let me know in the comments! Perhaps an additional installment of bagels may be in our future, if we're lucky...and craving Panera.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
