15 Things All Communications Majors ACTUALLY Want For Christmas

Though communications students will take the typical gifts given to those in college, there are some special gifts they'd appreciate that pertain to their degree. Here are the 11 things communications students ACTUALLY want for Christmas:

1. For people to stop asking, "What is communications?"

Here we go again...*recites rehearsed speech for the thousandth time*

2. For Hootsuite to automatically publish to Insta.

@ Hootsuite, pretty please?

3. For people to actually respond to surveys.

Because every comm. major dies a little inside when they get five respondents to a survey they spent three hours setting up.

4. Relevant reading material.

Gotta stay up-to-date in the always-changing world of communications!


It takes A LOT of caffeine to power a comm. major.

6. For a miracle pill that cures writer's block.

PLEASE let this be a thing.

7. For copyright protection to be lifted from the photos and music they want to use.

Why does the PERFECT cover photo ALWAYS have to be unusable?

8. A nice camera.

Yes, please.

9. Money.

Between the cost of textbooks and software like Adobe Creative Cloud, majoring in communications can add up!

10. An internship.

Every comm. major knows the importance of relevant experience.

11. For people to stop hating on communications degrees.

No, it is not the most difficult choice in the array of degrees, but that makes it an extremely competitive degree to major in. Students must work hard to gain an edge on their competitors.

12. Business attire.

This will come in handy for networking events, job interviews, internships and more! #suitup

13. SLEEP.

With loads of press releases to perfect and website takeovers to design, comm. students are not used to getting this much-needed thing we call sleep. Let them relax over break.

14. MORE coffee.

(since actually getting a good night's sleep may be a stretch)

15.To graduate already and start an exciting career in the communications world.

Whether they go into advertising, public relations, journalism or something else, every comm. major is excited to start a career in the field they love.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
