Your Go-To Basic Fall Activity, Based On Your Major

Nothing says fall like a PSL.

Your Go-To Basic Fall Activity, Based On Your Major

It's officially October, so let the fall festivities begin! Find the perfect (and totally basic) fall activity for you based on your major!

1. English: Drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the library

I mean, let's face it, it doesn't matter what season it is, English majors are in the library... and probably drinking coffee because they need a lot of caffeine to complete all the reading for their millions of lit classes. However, to be festive, they could read some "Harry Potter" or Ray Bradbury books.

2. Business: Host a Halloween party

Business majors are probably one of the most social majors, so obviously they'd throw a party for, you know, networking purposes...

3. Graphic Design: Take photos of leaves and edit them flawlessly

Graphic design majors are super artistic. They usually have the best Instagrams because they know how to take gorgeous photos and edit them perfectly to make the lighting all fall-ish.

4. History: Tour an actual haunted house

Why visit a pretend haunted house when you could visit a historical one? History majors are definitely for this.

5. Nursing: Buy too many fall candles

Nursing majors are so busy with clinicals and studying that they don't really have time for fall festivities. They do, however, have time to enjoy a pumpkin scented candle while they do their homework.

6. Dance: Break out the flannels

Flannels are the perfect thing to wear during barre over your leotard and tights when the studio is cold, but it's still too warm to wear a sweatshirt. Also, dance majors are just hip like that.

7. Bio Med: Go apple picking

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. You gotta practice what you preach and eat those apples. Get photographic evidence and post it on Instagram.

8. Engineering: Get lost in a corn maze

Just kidding, engineering majors are probably the only major that wouldn't actually get lost. That's why they should do it though, so they can be too good at yet another thing.

9. Theatre: Enter a costume contest and win

No one does Halloween quite like theatre majors. They're the ones that have the most thought out ensembles that win every single costume contest. If they're good at stage makeup, that's another bonus.

10. Education: Pass out Halloween candy

Education majors usually love children, so this is self-explanatory. In college, you probably won't get many/any trick-or-treaters, so the more candy for you.

11. Communications: Attend a Fall Festival

As a communications major, you have to keep up to date with local events while maintaining flawless social media accounts. Communications majors should go to a local fall festival for "research."

12. Athletic Training: Go on a hike

Hiking in the fall is wonderful. It's not too hot and it's not too cold and all the leaves are gorgeous. It's also v healthy, so athletic training majors definitely have it on their fall bucket list.

13. Art: Paint or carve a pumpkin

This is kind of obvious, but painting and carving pumpkins are about the most artistic fall activities that you can do. Art majors clearly excel in this area.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
