If College Majors Were Hurts Donuts

If College Majors Were Hurts Donuts

The stereotypes are so accurate it Hurts.

Every major has their stereotype, but what if every major had their Hurts Donut? I have picked 10 college majors and dubbed each with their own personal donut that best fits the major as a whole. It might be hard to determine which major is best, but maybe it'll be easier to choose which donut is best.

1. Advertising - Cosmic Brownie

Advertising majors are always inventing new ideas that are creative and guaranteed to grab a consumer's attention. Like this donut, their ideas are out of this world.

2. Broadcast Journalist - E.T.

E.T. phone home! Just like poor E.T. stranded on earth, most broadcast journalism majors find themselves stranded in the newsroom. They spend long hours writing their stories and editing their videos before going live on air later that day.

3. Business - English Gentleman

The smooth talkers. The fancy dressers. The future CEOs of this world. They work hard and play hard. Business majors are either overachievers or slackers, but one thing they all have in common: they dress to impress.

4. Engineering - White and Nerdy

Everyone knows that engineering majors are nerdy, but these engineers aren't your typical nerds. These nerds not only know math, but they bring math to life by building super cool things. I shouldn't even have to explain why this donut best fits an engineering major.

5. Computer Science - Cotton Candy

If a computer science major isn't playing video games, they're either typing out a confusing code that nobody but they can understand, or they're making their own video game. This donut looks like it came from a virtual reality, which is why it is the perfect donut for computer science majors.

6. Theatre - S'mores

I hope you want s'more because theatre majors are always extra. Where there's one s'more you can bet there are many others. Theatre majors hang out in packs. You'll know when you see a group of theatre majors if you hear belting of songs, people talking over each other and changes of accents.

7. Education - Fruity Pebbles

The most colorful major of all. These future educators of the world live and breathe construction paper, colored markers, paints and more. In fact, their class projects look a lot like this donut.

8. Dance - Birthday Cake

Birthday Cakes are always so fancy. Dance majors spend day in and day out perfecting every technique. Nobody sees the hard work that goes into a Birthday Cake, only that it looks flawless... much like a dance major.

9. Pre-Med - Maple Bacon

Pre-Med majors (if successful) will bring home the bacon someday, and that is the sole reason they are the Maple Bacon donut.

10. German - Bavarian

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?
