College Major Stereotypes

I guess high school never does end.

College Major Stereotypes

So I just finished my first year at college, and I’m going to let you in on a secret: there are still cliques. I know, ground-shaking information. They are called a “major,” and when you join one, you better be ready for what you are really signing up for.

The English Majors: You better not ask them what they are even going to do with “that degree” and then turn around and ask them to grade your paper. These people are the ones who have to write 25 page papers that are due by Monday.

The Music/Theater Majors: These guys always seem to have fun; they are the ones who are always dancing and singing, and sometimes it gets to be a little too much. When I say they sing and dance everywhere, it doesn’t matter the time or day; they will sing and dance all day and night.

Education Majors: This might be biased, but these people get stepped on all the time. It might seem like they are always free, but that is only an illusion. School is only in the morning, so they have to fit all the required field experience in along with other classes. They also are the most prepared; I personally have a first aid kit, crayons, and three coloring books with me at all times.

Engineers: These people think they are the kings of the world. Just because they will get fancy, high-paying jobs and not have to worry about paying back student loans. What they lack in proper social skills they make up for in snobby comments.

Psychology Majors: These are the type of people that look at you once and think that you want to sleep with your mother. They don’t know how to study because they ace everything.

Political Science Majors: The "lax bro" equivalent of the college community. Seriously, if these people are busy, they will let you know it. They like to think they are the big dogs on campus, and they can’t see that people don’t like them because they have 700 followers on twitter.

Nursing Majors: Give these people a hug. These people have so much going on and it’s ridiculous.

Athletic Training: These people are almost the same as doctors. Just remember they can’t diagnose you when you sprain your ankle jumping out of bed because you woke up late.

Double Majors: These people are at least 40 percent of my stress in life. I don’t have time to hear about all you have going on. I can’t even handle my own major; I don’t need you to complain to me all the time.

The Undecided Majors: Typically freshmen, these are the people that are normally taking the general education classes. They are also the ones to go out to a party on a Tuesday night because they don’t have any morning classes scheduled for that purpose.

Again, these are only things I’ve noticed on my campus. What is written here doesn’t apply to all people in that specific major. At my college, these are the attitudes that are most prevalent.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
