How "Drake & Josh" Prepared Us For The Real World

Growing up, we all watched those crazy shows on television. Some of them suggested that life would offer us some opportunities that were just too good to be true, like "The Fairly Odd Parents." Some of them allowed us to experience things that we would never be able to experience on our own, like "The Wild Thornberrys." Some of them simply made us laugh, like "The Amanda Show." However, out of all the crazy things we've seen on television, no one better prepared us for the real world than "Drake and Josh." Though their shenanigans might seem a little too absurd to happen to everyday college students like you and I, you wouldn't believe how right they were about everything.



When professors ask you to answer a question on a topic that they haven't taught you yet. - In college, there aren't many things worse than being called on in front of an entire lecture hall and not knowing the answer to the professor's question. But come on. How can they expect you to know the answer when they haven't taught the material yet!?



Okay, fine. The only thing worse than not knowing the answer to the professor's question is when you answer the question incorrectly, and then the professor calls on someone else and they answer it correctly and act like they don't understand how anyone could not know the answer to that super simple, first grade question.



Those times when you're sure your professors are plotting your death because you've been assigned three papers, two presentations and an exam... all due on the same day. - We've all been there, when no amount of all-nighters seems to provide the amount of time you need in order to prepare for this due date. We promise, it will get better... After you turn everything in and you can sleep for three days straight.



Nothing beats mom's home cooking. - You're probably going to be pretty excited to try all sorts of new things while you're away at college. Food from the dining hall is not going to be one of them. Whether you're grabbing a quick bite in between classes or you're mowing down on everything in sight, nothing you eat in the dining hall will compare to your mom's home cooking, so make sure you say thank you when she sends you those leftovers.



Teachers can do whatever they want, including changing the due date of an assignment an hour before it's due. - College can make you feel pretty bad about yourself sometimes. And sometimes, it's not your fault and there's not a thing you can do about it. Like when you spend three days in the library working on an assignment and you trudge all the way to class and when you get there, the teacher extends the due date for all of the students who didn't get it done in time.



So whether you're trying to justify the fact that you've skipped all of your classes for the day...



Or you're learning something you never knew that you never knew...



You'll be glad that you grew up learning from the wise words of everyone's favorite stepbrothers.

19 Things About Being a Nursing Major As Told By Michael Scott

Michael just gets it.

If you're a nursing major, you relate to the following 19 things all too well. Between your clinical encounters and constant studying, you can't help but wonder if anyone else outside of your major understands the daily struggles you face in nursing school. And even though being the regional manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, Inc. isn't the same as being a nursing major, Michael Scott does a pretty accurate job of describing what it's like.

1. When your professor overloads your brain with information on the first day of class.

2. Realizing that all your time will now be spent studying in the library.

3. Being jealous of your friends with non-science majors, but then remembering that your job security/availability after graduation makes the stress a little more bearable.

4. Having to accept the harsh reality that your days of making A's on every assignment are now over.

5. When you're asked to share your answer and why you chose it with the whole class.

6. Forgetting one item in a "select all that apply" question, therefore losing all of its points.

7. When you're giving an IV for the first time and your patient jokingly asks, "This isn't your first time giving one of these, right?"

8. You're almost certain that your school's nursing board chose the ugliest scrubs they could find and said, "Let's make these mandatory."

9. Knowing that you have an important exam that you could (should) be studying for, but deciding to watch Netflix instead.

10. Getting to the first day of clinical after weeks of classroom practice.

11. When you become the ultimate mom-friend after learning about the effects various substances have on the human body.

12. Running off of 4-5 hours of sleep has become the new norm for you.

13. And getting just the recommended 7-8 hours makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

14. You have a love-hate relationship with ATI.

15. When your study group says they're meeting on a Saturday.

16. Choosing an answer that's correct, but not the "most" correct, therefore it is wrong.

17. And even though the late nights and stress can feel overwhelming,

18. You wouldn't want any other major because you can't wait to save lives and take care of others.

19. And let's be honest...

Wait, Judy Genshaft Wasn't the Only USF President?

A glance at the five preceding presidents to grace the University of South Florida prior to Judy Genshaft.

With the buzzing news of Judy Genshaft's upcoming retirement, I decided to read more on her career and her success. She has done so much to propel the University of South Florida forward, achieving all of her set goals in the process. But in one of the many articles I saw reporting on Genshaft's retirement, there was a statement made by Betty Castor in reaction to the news. Who's Betty Castor you may ask? Well Betty Castor is USF's fifth and most recent president preceding Judy Genshaft. Meaning yes, Judy Genshaft is USF's sixth president.

Here's an introduction to ALL six USF Presidents:

1. John S. Allen, 1957-1970

Previously an astronomer, professor, and the Executive Vice President at the University of Florida, John S. Allen was appointed as the first president in USF history July 27, 1957. When John S. Allen arrived in Tampa, he had to literally craft the University of South Florida from the ground up. His opposition to major college sports fueled his desire to make USF the best academically. During his tenure, USF was considered to be the "Harvard of the South." Pretty cool to consider. After his retirement, our accomplished founder was honored with the "John and Grace Allen Center", named after himself and his wife.

2. Cecil Mackey, 1971-1976

Once the director of the Office of Policy Development for the Federal Aviation Agency, and the assistant Secretary for policy Development for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Maurice Cecil Mackey, Jr. joined USF's administration February of 1971. During his presidency, Mackey opened USF Sarasota and dispersed the College of Liberal Arts into four new colleges. After leaving the University of South Florida, he went on to be the President of Michigan State University, and Texas Tech University.

3. John Lott Brown, 1978-1988

After a period with two interim presidents in place at the University of South Florida, John Lott Brown was finally inaugurated April 15, 1978. Brown also had a history in aviation, and he had conducted research related to early space flight. He utilized his time as president to establish the Moffit Cancer Center, USF Psychiatry Center, and the USF College of public health.

4. Francis Borkowski, 1988-1993.

During his career, Francis Borkowski was an administer at five different Universities. But on February 5th, 1988, he took over as president for the University of South Florida. With his short tenure at USF, Borkowski hoped to raise the University's status in both academics and athletics. In 1991, one of his goals was achieved with the foundation of the College of Arts and Sciences.

5. Betty Castor, 1994-1999

Betty Castor's time at USF was historical because she was the first female president the school had ever seen. When she became a part of the administration team USF already had four campuses, a medical school, and over 40,000 students. She walked into a well established institution and still managed to fulfill an advantageous agenda. Castor expanded the Honors Program, earned recognition for the University's Research achievements, and took USF abroad to countries such as China and Africa. Betty Castor Hall was famously named after her, and her legacy continues to show relevance at the University.

6. Judy Genshaft, 2000-2019 (Pending)

Judy Genshaft has the longest tenure in the University's history, and she was recently ranked as the 11th highest paid university president in the United States. We know and love her for her many accomplishments, as of recent USF's emergence as a preeminent university, but she has also been involved in a few controversies. Even so, she has tremendously transformed the University of South Florida and will be retiring at the peak of her administrative career.
