As the month of August comes to an end, it means millions of students are getting ready to head off to college. For the upperclassmen, it means another year of trying to survive the classes, but for the new freshman...well, they don't really know what to expect.

College is basically a bunch of specialized schools that are right next to each other with the occasional food place in between buildings. Like in high school, there were rivalries between neighboring schools, so it is no surprise that neighboring colleges within the same university trash talk each other. Here are 45 college majors and the slogans they would be as told by their rivals.

1. Linguistics

"Why learn to speak foreign languages when you can learn about them!"

2. Microbiology

"Never be comfortable at a party ever again!"

3. Industrial Engineering

"Everything is just so inefficient."

4. Agriculture

"It’s all tractors and corn until you have to remember the algebra and science you thought you would never see after your 8th-grade science class ended."

5. Information Technology

"You like working with computers, but hate the people that use them."

6. Chemistry

"The only place alcohol is a solution."

7. Political Science

"Your opinion is wrong…"

8. Aerospace Engineering

11. Criminal Justice



"We are here because we watch Law & Order."

12. Counseling

Hiding our baggage while we help you deal with your own!

13. Pre-med

I’ll probably switch to nursing in 2 years…

14. Marine Biology

"Come for the dolphins but leave studying algae and ecology."

15. Art History

"And you thought making art was pointless..."

16. Civil Engineering

"For the last time, we are not architects!"

17. Physics

"Everything you learned last week was wrong."

18. Psychology

"Good luck doing anything until you have a master's degree!"

19. Biochemistry

"You thought you’d help cure cancer but you are actually making soaps."

20. Engineering

"Because you were good at math and science."

21. Mathematics

"I just want to be a math teacher..."

22.History

“So do you want to teach, or…?”

23. Creative Writing

"You can throw job security out the window."

24. Accounting

"Give us a ton of money to show the government you aren’t sketchy."

25. Finance

"Accounting was just too hard for me."

26. Meteorology

"Nobody will listen to your forecasts but will say you’re wrong anyway."

27. Environmental Science

"It is SOIL, not dirt!"

28. Anthropology



"No, we are not the ones who dig things up…"

"We don't dig things up either..."

30. Paleontology

31. Statistics

32. Law

"You get paid to worry for your clients, and your six figures of student load debt give you great practice."

33. Philosophy

"I think; therefore, I am unemployable."

34. Mechanical Engineering

"I've only used a drill like twice, but here is how you have to build your jet engine..."

35. Music

"They go from bar to bar."

36. Wildlife Ecology

"Trading income for adventure since 1864."

37. Computer Science

“So uh can you fix my-“

“No, I probably don’t know how to fix your computer.”

38. Business Management

“My dad told me to come here and he’s paying for it so I just kinda went with it.”

39. Social Work

"No, we are not baby stealers."

40. Nursing

"Where every answer is right, but you are somehow still wrong."

Its not about being right, it's about being right.

To All Incoming Freshmen, When You Get To College, Please Don't Be THAT Freshman

I am pretty sure we all know who I'm talking about.

As we are all counting down the days to return to campus, students are looking forward to meeting new people and reuniting with old friends. And then, there is the freshman.

We have all been there. The eagerness and excitement have been slowly building up through months of summer vacation, all waiting for this moment. I understand the anxiousness, enthusiasm, and insecurities. The opportunity to meet new people and explore a new area is very intriguing. But let's be real, you are here to make memories and get an education. So here are a few pieces of advice from a former college freshman.

1. Don't be that freshman who follows their significant other to college

This is the boy or girl who simply can not think for themselves. The 17-year-old puts their own personal goals and interests aside to sacrifice for a six-month high school relationship. This will more than likely end at an end of semester transfer after the relationship has been tested for a month or two in college life. So if you want to really enjoy your freshman year, make your own decisions and do what is best for you.

2. Don't be that freshman who lets their parents pick their major

"You are not going to school just to waste my money."

This is a statement you might have heard from your parents. As true as it might seem, this is definitely not a good way to start your college years. If you are not majoring in something you can see yourself doing, you are wasting your time. You can major in biology, go to medical school, and make the best grades. But if deep down you don't want to be a doctor, you will NOT end up being a good doctor. When it comes to picking your major, you really have to follow your heart.

3. Don't be that freshman who gets overwhelmed with the first taste of freedom

Yes. It is all very exciting. You don't have a curfew, you don't have rules, you don't have anyone constantly nagging you, but let's not get carried away. Don't be the freshman who gets a tattoo on the first night of living on your own. Don't be the freshman who tries to drink every liquor behind the bar. Don't be the freshman who gets caught up being someone that they aren't. My best advice would be to take things slow.

4. Don't be that freshman who starts school isolated in a relationship

I'm not telling you not to date anyone during your freshman year. I am saying to not cut yourself off from the rest of the world while you date someone. Your first year on campus is such an amazing opportunity to meet people, but people are constantly eager to start dating someone and then only spend time with that person.

Be the freshman who can manage time between friends and relationships.

5. Don't be that freshman who can't handle things on their own

It is your first year on your own. Yes, you still need help from your parents. But at this point, they should not be ordering your textbooks or buying your parking pass. If you need something for a club or for class, YOU should handle it. If you're having roommate problems, YOU should handle it, not your parents. This is the real world and college is a great time for you to start building up to be the person you want to be in the future, but you can't successfully do that if your parents still deal with every minor inconvenience for you.

6. Don't be that freshman who only talks to their high school friends

I know your high school was probably amazing, and you probably had the coolest people go there. However, I believe that college is a great time to be on your own and experience new things. Meeting new people and going to new places will allow you to grow into a more mature person. There is a way to balance meeting new friends and maintaining friendships with childhood friends, and I am sure you will find that balance.

9 Mistakes That Are Perfectly OK To Make In College

I promise everyone makes these mistakes at some point!

813

College is hard, don't underestimate it. While it would be great if we could all go through life as Elle Woods, it probably won't happen. While life would be a lot easier if none of us messed up, it's bound to happen at some point. Here's a couple of things it's completely okay to do wrong!!

1. Choose the wrong major.

GIPHY

I promise it is NOT the end of the world if you have to change majors. In fact, sometimes it can be the best possible thing for you! It's okay to not be an engineer, I learned very quickly I'm not meant to deal with that much math for the rest of my life.

2. Mess things up with a roomie.

makeagif

Roomie fights happen, it's a part of life. While it'd be great to handle every situation perfectly, just knowing you did your best is sometimes all people can ask of you.

3. Go through a phase.

GIPHY

Whether it be a girly phase, a chill phase, a peppy phase, a gym phase, or something else entirely you will most likely change in college. You will probably go through one or more phases and that's a-okay!

4. Forget a homework assignment, or a test, or something even more important.

GIPHY

Yes, this situation isn't the best, but NO, it will not kill you. Inevitably you're going to forget something and probably get a zero or a late grade. And while planning ahead might help, you will probably let something slip. So, accept it now and know that the most important thing you can do if it happens is staying calm and figuring out how to do better next time.

5. Date the wrong person.

GIPHY

College is about figuring out who you are and who you want to be. Part of that involves the people you surround yourself with. It's completely okay to surround yourself with people who might not be there in a few months. In fact, it doesn't even apply to relationships. Sometimes the best friendships for you are the ones that don't last long but help you grow.

6. Have a little too much fun.

GIPHY

Whether having too much fun means staying out too late and crashing on someone's couch or spending a few extra dollars, it will be okay! Just learn from whatever fun you do have.

7. Impulse buys(!!!)

If you ask my mom she would probably agree this is my most common mistake. But it can also be one of the most fun. So yeah, maybe you don't need BOTH pairs of black wedges, but let's face it: the gold and silver accents mean they can go with two different outfits. So, go ahead and make the purchase... just be sure to thank me later!

8. Join the wrong organization.

GIPHY

We've all been there. It's so exciting and coming to college means the start of a new era so sometimes the temptation to join every organization under the moon can be overpowering. But I am here to tell you right here, right now that not every organization is the right one for every person. It's okay to join an organization, even if it's the wrong one. Maybe don't completely ghost them, but a courteous resignation is totally acceptable at a natural break (i.e. the end of the semester or year)!

9. Buy crocs.

GIPHY

Just to clarify, buying Crocs is NOT a mistake. But I felt like it was an appropriate finale to this list as crocs are the most adorable ugly shoes ever. They're so ugly they're cool and everyone should own a pair.

Okay, that's all, I think. P.S. Buy them before the factories close (if that's a real thing!!!).
