If College Majors Were Coca-Cola Products

If College Majors Were Coca-Cola Products

"We've got a taste for you" -The Coca-Cola Company

1. Smart Water - Engineering

Smart Water is engineering majors because instead of normal water, it's gotta make a simple process like water treatment more complicated by being "vapor distilled," much like how engineer majors make anything more complex than it really needs to be. Plus, they are truly freakishly smart.

2. Powerade - Sports Medicine

Powerade comes in all different flavors and specialities much like Sports Medicine majors. It's also full of electrolytes which is good for hydration when working out.

3. Minute Maid - Education

Education is Minute Maid because it makes kids happy, makes parents happy, and comes in a variety of flavors much like education majors who range their teaching levels from preschool, elementary, middle school, high school, and college levels.

4. Coca-Cola - Advertising

Coke is competitive as we all know, and it is constantly compared to Pepsi. Advertising majors know how competitive the advertising world really is. Much like Coke, advertising majors know how to spread the word and draw attention to events, products, and services.

5. Diet Coke - Business

Diet Coke has no time for fun as it cuts out anything that gives it flavor compared to delicious regular Coke. Much like business majors who are always dressed to the nines, talking about stock market rates, and their accounting homework, there is no time for fun in the business world.

6. Fanta - Language

Fanta is popular all over the world, and each country seems to have their favorite flavor of this soda. Much like Fanta, language majors are vibrant and cultured as they are well aware of the many different cultures across the globe and are fluent in not one language but two sometimes even more than that.

7. Sprite - Political Science

With Sprite, it has two flavors constantly battling to get your attention with the lemon and lime twist. Political Science is the exact same thing with the majors splitting into two sides constantly arguing as to why their side is better than the other but sometimes they come together and it is truly beautiful, much like when the lemon and lime flavors come together in Sprite.

8. Vitaminwater - Pre-Med

Vitaminwater is much like a Pre-Med major. Pre-Med majors are serious all of the time and tired, but when you really get to know a Pre-Med major, they are actually quite wild when they don't have to study for a biology exam. Much like Vitaminwater, Pre-Med majors have a surprising "flavor" to them.

9. Fresca - Psychology

Much like Fresca, Psychology majors are confusing. Some really want to go to grad school while others are solidly convinced they will have a job like someone on CSI. Fresca is kind of the same; like is it water or is it a soft drink? It just can't make up it's mind (pun intended).

10. Honest Tea - Pre-Law

Honest Tea doesn't need any artificial sweeteners; its taste is straight to the point, much like a Pre-Law major. You may meet a few "simply sweet" Pre-Law majors, but most are direct and want answers immediately. They don't have time for you to bullshit them, and they can more than likely tell when you do. Honest Tea doesn't try to bullshit you like most teas on the market (I'm looking at you Brisk).

11. Odwalla - Computer Science

Odwalla is a Computer Science major - you don't know what is in it but you know it's got to be good for you (compared to other Coca-Cola drinks). Much like Computer Science majors, the world of computers and technology is constantly evolving so they have moments where they have no idea what they are doing, but they know this major will pay off in the long run.

12. Coke Zero - Marketing

Coke Zero is Marketing majors because it knows how to sell anything even if it's crappy. Coke Zero has no flavor, but with it's phenomenal marketing skills, people still buy it. Marketing majors specialize in finding the correct market to sell anything to.

13. Mello Yellow -Philosophy

Philosophy Majors just seem mello all the time and it probably from reading a lot of Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato. Philosophy majors are extremely deep and well in touch with their soul, much like Mello Yellow. At first when you taste it, it just tastes like an orange soda, but the longer it lingers in your mouth it tastes like lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit.

14. Fuze - Vet Med

Fuze comes in different styles, colors, and flavors. Vet Med majors are constantly observing different animals and coming up with different diagnoses for animal issues. You never know what you are going to see in the daily life as a Vet Med major.

15. Dasani - Economics

Dasani is Economic majors because while it seems like water, Dasani is actually more complex with the different added minerals and vitamins that are added to give it flavor. Much like Economic majors, they know Econ is not as easy as it may seem and is rather complex until you get a hold of things.

Why Nursing School Is Different Than Any Other Major

Because most other majors can't kill someone accidentally by adding wrong.

College is hard. Between studying for numerous amounts of tests and balancing eating, working out, maintaining a social life, and somehow not breaking your bank account, it’s no wonder a common conversation among students is “how many mental breakdowns did you have this week?” Every major will pose its own challenges; that’s truth. Nursing school, however, is a special kind of tough that only other nursing majors can understand.

Nurses are the backbone and unsung hero of healthcare. Their job is to advocate for the patient, collaborate care among all other healthcare team members, carry out physician orders, recognize and report patient progress (or lack thereof), run interference for the patient with any unwanted visitors, research and validate evidence based practice, all while maintaining a certain aurora of confidence for patients and their loved ones that “everything will be okay” and “I’ve got this under control”. If that sounds like a lot; that’s because it is. The majority of skills that we learn that make good nurses cannot actually be taught in theory classes. It’s the hours of actual practice and a certain knack for caring for people- all people- that makes a good nurse great. The countless, unrelenting hours that are spent on the floor in clinical humble us, we know that we’re not great yet, but we’re trying.

Our professors expect us to be humble as well. Nurses do not seek gold stars for their actions, instead the precedence that is set for us to that we “do the right thing because it is the right thing to do”. Most nursing programs grading scales are different. To us, a failing grade isn’t actually getting a 69 or lower, it’s an 80. And that makes sense; no one would want a nurse who only understand 70% of what is happening in the body. We have to understand the normal body response, what happens when things go wrong, why it happens the way it does, and how to properly intervene. We want to learn, it interests us, and we know that the long theory classes and the hard days on the floor are just to make us better. However, any triumph, anytime you do well, whatever small victory that may feel like for you, it just what is supposed to happen- it’s what is expected, and we still have much to learn.

I look back on my decision to take on nursing school, and I often find myself questioning: why? There are so many other majors out there that offer job security, or that help people, or would challenge me just as much. But, when I think of being a nurse- it’s what fulfills me. There’s something that the title holds that makes me feel complete (and that same fact is going to resonate with anyone who wants to love their job). I wouldn’t change the decision I made for anything, I love what I am learning to do and I feel that it’s part of what makes me who I am. The other students who I have met through nursing school are some of the most amazing people I have ever come into contact with, and the professors have helped me understand so much more about myself than I thought possible.

Nursing is treating and understanding the human response. Meaning that it’s not just the disease process, or the action of the medication, or the care that we provide, but that nurses treat the way in which people deal, react, feel, and cope with good news, bad news, terrible procedures, hospital stays and being completely dependent on other people. And the fact of the matter is that all people are different. There is no one magic treatment that will always work for every patient. In addition to course work, the clinical hours, the passion and drive to want to be a nurse, and the difficulty that comes with any medical profession, we have to understand each individual patient, as people and not their illness. And, in order to do that so much self discovery goes on each day to recognize where you are and how you are coping with everything coming your way.

What is taught in nursing school goes far beyond just textbook information or step by step procedures. We have to learn, and quickly, how to help and connect with people on a level which most struggle to accomplish in a lifetime. It's a different kind of instruction, and it either takes place quickly or not at all. The quality of nurse you become depends on it. Nursing school is different, not harder or better than any other school, just different.

Trying to figure out what to do in life.


I never saw the crossroad

Where I could cross n' roam

Under an arch or dome. [1]

I just kept on the road

That was laid out,

Told to hold out

Till it pays out. [2]

Now I think its too late

Been walking too long,

Classes are all wrong

But masses too strong. [3]

So I follow with my head down

And chest up, succeeding cause

I'm too scared to fuck it up. [4]

But I have a need to lead,

Top-down and gears up

Leaving nothing to the dust.

But if I drop out, I'm a fuck up. [5]

Is it better to live and rust

Or drive till it busts

With trust you can find the way? [6]

[1] - Play on roam/Rome. Starts the poem by expressing the feeling of being trapped in my path in life. I felt like I never got the chance to figure out what I wanted to do.

[2] - I think a lot of it was I was following what people told me I should be doing.

[3] - I have a feeling that it is too late to change my course of life. I'm in a college for business, taking classes about business, and everyone around me wants to do business.

[4] - This is saying that even though I am not passionate about what I am doing I am still trying to succeed only because I'm scared of failing or quitting.

[5] - I want to leave and lead myself, do something where I'm not following but I don't know how to do that. This part starts a car reference, idk I've been watching Formula 1 on Netflix and its dope.

[6] - This is the question I've been asking myself, wondering if I should continue on with my path or follow my passion.
