Different Majors At Christmas Parties

What happens when a variety of college majors mingle and make merry?

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!

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.

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.
