Halloween is one of THE greatest holidays, especially when you're a college student. Frat parties, bar events, and costume parties galore. What more could a college student ask for?

Halloween is the perfect time to go ALL OUT. Whether you are going for a funny costume, something on the sexier side, or a well-planned group costume - why not choose your costume based on your major this year?

If you need some Halloween costume inspiration, take a look at what each college major should dress up as this spooky season.

Nursing: A mummy

I'm sure that you assumed all nursing majors should dress up as a sexy nurse. While that is a good idea, it's a little too cliché for my liking. But a mummy? Genius. A mummy is wrapped in bandages, and nursing majors know a whole lot about first aid - using what? Bandages.

Pre-Med: A game of "Operation"

Dressing up as a game of Operation is a simple, but truly excellent choice. Pre-Med majors study everything regarding surgeries and operations, so this would be perfect.

Political Science: A president or a political figure

A president may sound cliche too, but you have SO many to choose from! There have been 45 American presidents - you could be Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Barack Obama - even Donald Trump. A political science major could rock any political figure, too! Hillary Clinton, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, even Monica Lewinsky if you're looking for some laughs. Political science majors know all about the presidents and political figures in our world, so they could totally nail this costume.

Business/Finance: An iconic entrepreneur

There are quite a lot of iconic entrepreneurs that Business majors can dress up as this Halloween. Oprah Winfrey, one of the richest African Americans of the 21st century with an amazing rags-to-riches story? Check. Walt Disney, entrepreneurial all-star who created a wildly successful animation company and the biggest and greatest theme park ever seen? Check. J.K. Rowling, magically successful self-made billionaire? Check. Bill Gates, the richest man in the world? Check. Steve Jobs, a college dropout turned "Grandfather of the Digital Revolution?" Check.

Education: A children's book character

There are plenty of famous children's books that all education majors should know and love. Some ideas are the cat from "The Cat in the Hat", Max from "Where the Wild Things Are," Charlie or Willy Wonka from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," a Hundred Acre Wood citizen from "Winne the Pooh," the caterpillar from "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," Harriet from "Harriet the Spy," or Charlotte from "Charlotte's Web." PLENTY of wonderful options!

English/Literature: A famous novel character

English and/or literature majors know all about timeless and iconic pieces of literature. So why not dress up as one? You could be Atticus or Scout Finch from "To Kill A Mockingbird," Shakespeare's Romeo or Juliet, Jay Gatsby or Daisy Buchanan from "The Great Gatsby," or J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter or Hermione Granger.

History: A ghost or a historical figure

What represents past lives (i.e. history) better than a ghost? History majors study all things that happened in the past, and ghosts sure do know a lot about that.

History majors can also dress up as a famous historical figure! Some ideas include Albert Einstien, Aristotle, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Mahatma Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, Nikola Tesla, or Amelia Earhart.

Psychology: A zombie

Do you know what psychology majors love? Brains. Do you know what zombies love? Brains.

Biology/Anatomy: A skeleton

Biology and Anatomy majors have certainly spent a good amount of their education studying the skeletal system. What better way to represent that then with a spooky skeleton costume?

Criminal Justice: A police officer

Criminal Justice majors can obviously be a police officer, but there are some fun ways to spice this up. A Criminal Justice major could be Burt Macklin (FBI) from "Parks And Recreation," Jake Peralta or Rosa Diaz from "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," or Olivia Bensen or Dominick Carisi from "Law and Order: SVU."

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

4313

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
