Different Majors At Christmas Parties

Happy holidays! As the fall semester comes to a close, everyone wants to celebrate with ugly sweater parties and other trendy Yuletide activities. Here are some things you might expect to find at a party when majors mix this holiday season.

The political science major and the history major are ironically wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and watching old Christmas movies. During commercials, they compete to see who can name all of the US presidents and state capitals faster.

The chemistry major and biology major stand in the middle of the room wearing ugly Christmas sweaters unironically. They make jokes more abominable than any snowman. A psychology major pretends to listen to the jokes but is secretly psychoanalyzing the chemistry major.


The sociology major and the women’s studies major sip hot cocoa and survey the people at the party. They express mutual admiration for Bell Hooks and begin a conversation about intersectional feminism that lasts for the duration of the party.

The business major and economics major are both overdressed and are sitting on a couch drinking out of small, clear glasses. After their second round of drinks, they discuss starting a business together. By round three of drinks, they begin to arm wrestle.

The psychology major convinces the chemistry and biology majors to play an obscure charades game that none of them actually want to play. The biology major is exhausted from a four-hour lab and falls asleep within 20 minutes.

The philosophy major and religion major drink eggnog by the fireplace. The religion major pulls a nativity scene off the mantel and begins describing obscure facts about the history of Christmas. The philosophy major asks, Why does it matter? They both experience their third existential crisis of the day.

The communication major flits around the room in a Santa hat taking selfies and updating social media.

A math major and an education major are working on a 2,000-piece puzzle in the corner. The English major joins them while debating whether or not to get that copy of "A Christmas Carol" out of the car. The communication major sits next to the English major and they begin to debate the value the Oxford comma.

College is a time to meet and befriend people from all disciplines of study. Shenanigans are sure to ensure when majors mix to be merry!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
