If College Majors Were Broadway Musicals

If College Majors Were Broadway Musicals

What Broadway Musical Are You?

Biology - Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein is all about science, and Frederick compares himself to Charles Darwin; loving his theory about natural selection.

Marine Biology - The Little Mermaid

This one speaks for itself. The whole musical is about the ocean and there is a crab named Sebastian who sing about how great it is living “Under the Sea.”

Pre-Med - 9 To 5

There isn’t a musical called 24/7, so 9 To 5 will have to do. Pre-Med majors are always on their feet, doing homework, assessment, labs, and the list goes on and on.

Music - The Music Man

The major is in the title. Music majors want to organize things, from concerts to individual works. Music majors are focused and definitely hard working, just like Harold Hill.

Theatre - Grease

Grease is by far one of the most well known musicals in history, and is one of the most common musically as well. Theatre majors want to be heard and well known. Wop ba-ba lu-mop and wop bam boom!

Design - Wicked

If you have ever seen “Broadway’s Biggest Blockbuster,” you’ve had to seen the set, costumes, and the intricaticity of the production. Design majors make their art well known, and Wicked is one of the best shows on Broadway.

Fashion - Legally Blonde

Elle Woods has a lot of fashion and she is able to see imperfections in even the smallest detail. Although she went to law school, her fashion roots would never leave her. She is the definition of fashion.

Nursing - Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen is the biggest musical of this past season. Nursing majors represent this show because they are the ones who want to take the x-ray of Ben Platt’s broken arm.

Psychology - Cats

Psychologists observe and analyze, it's what they do. A bunch of talking cats on a stage... why is that a thing? A psychology major would like to take these actors and actresses to therapy to see why they dress up as singing cats each night.

Education - School of Rock

School of Rock is an amazing story of how a teacher has an impact on his students. Education majors know that once they go into the field, their students will look up to them like the students of Horace Green look up to Dewey Finn.

History - Hamilton

The American musical is Broadway's biggest new hit, with sold out shows for the past few year, history definitely has its eyes on you.

Journalism - Groundhog Day

The new musical Groundhog Day is the definition of a journalism job. Broadcasting is a big subject in journalism.

English/Writing - Anything Goes

Whenever I think of English, there is never one set answer. Therefore, anything goes. Good authors, who once knew better words, now only use four-letter words, and prose writing. Anything goes.

Language Studies - In the Heights

The story is revolved around a Hispanic-American neighborhood where language and culture is everything to the characters.

Political Science - A Chorus Line

“I hope I get it.” Whether it be a position on a local council, or on the U.S. Senate, Political Science majors always hope they get it.

Philosophy - You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

“And that’s my new philosophy.” Sally Brown claims to have a new philosophy by comparing things that other people say and do, and this is what philosophers have done in the past, as well.

Mathematics - Les Miserables

24601 is a number, and math is the study of numbers. Math majors are very hard working, and so is Jean Valjean. Les Miserables and math majors have a positive correlation with an r=1.

Engineering - The Lion King

Engineering majors build and The Lion King is a representation of building the Pride Rock. In The Lion King’s costumes, there are also a work of engineering because they are so intricately designed.

Marine Transportation - Titanic

Everyone knows the story of Titanic and how it sunk. Marine Transportation majors hope for the opposite when sailing. They go to school to learn about sailing and what goes into making a ship successful.

Business - Kinky Boots

Since Charlie’s father past, he has taken over the family business trying to make things work. Business majors make things work by coming up with new ideas. Kinky Boots and business majors have a lot in common.

Undecided - Shrek the Musical

You are going to find purpose in what you want to study one day and it may not be what you expected, just like Shrek never thought he would share his swamp. Undecided majors go through each semester waiting for an opportunity to come knocking.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

The 7 Best Food Places Near UCLA You Need to Try ASAP

We have great dining food AND restaurants around us? Wow, we are #blessed.


Westwood is the home to UCLA and offers plenty of interesting and diverse dining options for students and locals alike. Since the area is firmly Bruin territory, you will find lots of on-the-go, affordable eats along with a mix of more modern and upscale restaurants.

Though I definitely haven't had all the food Westwood occurs, being here two years now (omg already!?), I think I can safely recommend certain places to eat.

1. Shamshiri Grill


South Westwood Boulevard is often referred to as Little Tehran, so most of that area is just Persian restaurants. Shamshiri Grill just makes the best meat and whenever I go there, I always order my meal with their special hot sauce, that is to DIE for. A must try.

2. Gushi

I can not tell you how many times I've been to this place. Located near Fat Sal's, you may be tempted to just miss it but let me tell you that is a mistake. I always get their Gushi Bowl which is just heavenly and the right amount to make me feel satisfied without being too filling. Be generous with the Teriyaki and Sriracha sauces on your meat and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

3. Pinches Tacos


I know Mexican food is very common wherever you go but Pinches Tacos is aesthetically pleasing and their food? Even more so. It just tastes so good! I definitely recommend the Asada fries and any tacos.

4. Saffron and Rose

Saffron and Rose is a Persian ice cream parlor like 10 minutes away from Shamshiri Grill and the quality and variety of ice cream is truly impressive. I would not have known my weakness for Jasmine ice cream if I hadn't tried this place and as always, the Saffron and Rose (it's namesake) deserves to be the name of the restaurant because of how rich in flavor it is.

5. Maharaja


I am very particular about my Indian food but the buffets in the afternoons at Maharaja definitely passes my checklist. I actually went there for my birthday so that just tells you how the food doesn't disappoint.

6. Nekter Juice Bar

I found out about this place very recently and I'm so glad I did because their bowls are so good. They also serve smoothies which I haven't had the pleasure to taste yet but I expect the same kind of quality. I am very partial to the Bruin Bowl and the Dragonfruit Bowl.

7. BJs


They have $3 Pizookies on Tuesday.

I am always there on Tuesday.

Are these two facts connected? Maybe.

What can I say? I just love the restaurants here.
