We all know that balancing work and play is a priority to college students.

You want to succeed and get good grades, but you also want to have a good time while you're still in college. Some struggle with balance. They over booze-cruise and some over-dedicate themselves to their work that they never get their dose of Vitamin D.

But, one thing that everyone can say, is that almost everyone drinks in college. And, the amount that you drink can definitely make or break your grades.

3.5 or higher

You educations means a lot to you, but you still know how to have fun every once in a while. The weekends are your time to shine, but the party doesn't start until your homework is done.

3.0-3.4

A little overwhelmed with your school work, you relax by doing you work with wine or doing half of your work then heading to the bar for their specials. You're a few times week regular, but you never go super crazy. You definitely care about your work and definitely need to get it done, but you're not afraid to pick up the bottle and get wild every now and again.

2.0-2.9

You try hard to get your work done but the fear of missing out has you buggin' hard. So, you try to get your work done before you go out, but you might forget a few things. Remember to pace yourself, and you're spending money to go to school for a reason! You may be at the club 5/7 days of the week, but you'll still turn in some of your work.

1.9 or lower

In constant stress-mode, you de-stress by going out with your friends and getting to parties. It's probably an every-day affair. But, you may let your grades slip a little more than you should, so you spend the next several weeks trying to scramble up the GPA scale. Sometimes it works out for the better, but other times, you end up falling close or below the red. Remember, prioritize your future. You have your whole life ahead of you to party and booze.

Everyone has their vices on how to cope with work and stress, but know that you should partake in those vices in moderation. There is plenty of time to get messed up and make some memories, just do it after you finish your schoolwork. What do you think breaks are for?

Also, PLEASE don't do hard drugs!!!

Happy drinking...I mean, studying!

8 Things You Should Never Say To An Education Major

"Is your homework just a bunch of coloring?"

Yes, I'm an Education major, and yes, I love it. Your opinion of the field won't change my mind about my future. If you ever happen to come across an Education major, make sure you steer clear of saying these things, or they might hold you in from recess.

1. "Is your homework just a bunch of coloring?"

Um, no, it's not. We write countless lesson plans and units, match standards and objectives, organize activities, differentiate for our students, study educational theories and principles, and write an insane amount of papers on top of all of that. Sometimes we do get to color though and I won't complain about that.

2. "Your major is so easy."

See above. Also, does anyone else pay tuition to have a full-time job during their last semester of college?

3. "It's not fair that you get summers off."

Are you jealous? Honestly though, we won't really get summers off. We'll probably have to find a second job during the summer, we'll need to keep planning, prepping our classroom, and organizing to get ready for the new school year.

4. “That's a good starter job."

Are you serious..? I'm not in this temporarily. This is my career choice and I intend to stick with it and make a difference.

5. “That must be a lot of fun."

Yes, it definitely is fun, but it's also a lot of hard work. We don't play games all day.

6. “Those who can't, teach."

Just ugh. Where would you be without your teachers who taught you everything you know?

7. “So, you're basically a babysitter."

I don't just monitor students, I teach them.

8. “You won't make a lot of money."

Ah yes, I'm well aware, thanks for reminding me. Teachers don't teach because of the salary, they teach because they enjoy working with students and making a positive impact in their lives.

No, A Colored Student Did Not 'Steal Your Spot,' They Worked Hard To Get Here

I keep hearing this ignorant question of, "How come illegal immigrants can get scholarships, but I can't?"

Real talk, this whole "they're stealing our resources!" thing has to stop.

It ranges from welfare to acceptance letters into prestigious universities. People (and by people, I'm referring to those who identify as white) have made the assumption that they are having their opportunities stolen by people of color. That's ridiculous.

I love my university. I love the people at my university. However, when I sit in a classroom and look around at my colleagues, the majority of them are white. Of course, there are some classes that are filled with more people of color, but for the most part, they're predominantly white. So, let's say that out of a classroom of 30 students, only 7 identify as people of color.

In what world can somebody make the argument that those 7 students are stealing the spot of a white student? I don't think people realize how hard those 7 students had to work just to be in the same spot as their white counterparts.

Let me use my experience: I am a Latina woman who is attending university on a full-ride scholarship. I don't always tell people about this, because I don't feel like being asked, "wow, what did you do to get that?!" A lot. I keep hearing this ignorant question of, "How come illegal immigrants can get scholarships, but I can't?"

First off, those "illegal immigrants" you're bashing, don't even qualify for financial aid. They don't qualify for most scholarships, actually. Second, have you considered that maybe, that "illegal immigrant" worked hard in and outside of school to earn their scholarship? I received my full-ride scholarship on the basis of my GPA, but also because I am a lower-class woman of color and was selected because I am disproportionately affected by poverty and access to a quality education.

So, this scholarship was literally created because there is an understanding that minorities don't have the same access to education as our white counterparts. It's not a handout though, I had to work hard to get the money that I have now. When white students get scholarships, it's not a handout but when you're Latina like me, apparently it is.

This way of viewing minorities and their education is damaging, and further discourages these people from receiving a quality education. We didn't steal anybody's spot, we had to work to get where we are, twice as hard as our white colleagues that are not discriminated against on a daily basis.

Instead of tearing down students of color because you didn't get a scholarship, why not criticize the American education system instead? It's not our fault tuition is $40k a year, and we have no reason to apologize for existing in a space that is predominantly white.

To students of color: you worked hard to get where you are, and I am proud of you. To white students: I'm proud of you too. We all worked hard to get to where we are now, let's lift each other up, not put each other down.
