If Common College Majors Were Their Students' Basic Starbucks Orders

Each major has its own reason for a certain caffeine buzz.


Have you ever been sitting in Starbucks and wondered if a type of drink holds a certain meaning? As a coffee-lover, I have. We all have our own set drinks we order every time, but maybe we order them because of what our college major requires of us.

1. Business major - Espresso

Business majors are always on-the-go, jumping from coding classes to statistics with very little sleep in the mix. Because of this, they only have time for the quick and easy espresso shot so they don't fall asleep in between classes and interviews.

2. Education major - Latte

These majors are comforting and reliable, just like a good ol' latte. You can never go wrong with it and can expect to see these people ordering them at coffee stands. They are thinking critically about the education system's future and need this boost to keep them going strong.

3. Communications major - Black coffee

Communication majors have so many fields they could go into: Journalism, human resources, public relations, etc. Because of this, they need a classic coffee drink to help them get to a steady coffee buzz so they can stay awake and explore all of the possibilities this major has to offer.

4. Architecture major - Cortado

The architecture majors have to think creatively and maturely about their work. They desperately need this sophisticated coffee drink to keep them going through their late nights in the studio creating and working hard.

5. Art major - Coffee shop special

Any art major relies on creativity and passion to complete their work. They are able to recognize the creativity that goes into creating something like a coffee special and are not afraid to stray from their normal drink to try it.

6. Health major - Tea

Health majors are doing a crazy amount of work, but they opt for tea to feel healthier about their need for caffeine. It is soothing and can still be caffeinated, so it does the trick for them.

Coffee says more than you think, and it's no surprise that perhaps certain drinks could coincide with what we are studying on campus.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
