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."

"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."

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

6. Chemistry

"The only place alcohol is a solution."

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."

"They go from bar to bar."

36. Wildlife Ecology

37. Computer Science

Dear Mom And Dad: A Letter Of Gratitude And Appreciation

35139
views

Dear Mom and Dad,

I know you both have been there for me every day since you first found out Mom was pregnant with me. I love you both for that and for so much more. But I am not sure if you know how much I appreciate everything you have done for me, everything you continue to do for me, and everything you will do for me. You two are my personal heroes. I look up to both of you all the time, even when you do not realize it.

You have been my guides in this world from my first, tentative, unsure steps—both as an infant and as a young woman attending college in a different state. No matter where I am or how much space, or how many zones, separates us, I know you are always there for me. You do not know how much I appreciate your constant presence. Even though we do not talk or text every day, I think of you constantly. I try calling at least once a week and sometimes we talk more often than that. You two are the first people I text or call when I receive any news—good or bad. When my legs feel like they will collapse under me at any moment, I can call either of you and know you will be there to catch me when I fall.



Dad, you have been the strong (What can I say instead of rock?) for me to lean on. You give me strength with your warm, quiet nature. In the past two years (and few months) at Stetson, you have heard me ask endless, unanswerable questions, scream unnecessarily at you when you did nothing wrong, cry hysterically when I begin teetering on the mountain that is school, and babble on and on about something you only care about because I care. You absorb it all without complaint. And then you find the right words to my random questions, to guide me on my way, to show me I can and will handle the obstacles in front of me, to calm me down, to prompt me to think of an alternative viewpoint to help me through a writer’s block. Thank you for being there when I needed you the most and when I just needed to hear your voice.

You gave me your joy and love for horses from the very first moment that you strapped me into one of those front-baby-carriers and rode Trampus when I was just a few months old. You taught me to ride, shoot, hunt (well you hunted, I fetched), fish, drive, and so much more. You show me what love is through your love for Mom. You show me patience, honesty, strength, honor, kindness, hard work. You show me how I should act and how I should treat others. Thank you for being the best dad that I’ve ever had. (Shhh, yes I know you’ve been my only dad.) Never forget that no matter how old I am or when I marry my future husband, I will always be your little girl. I love you Daddy!



Mom, you have always been there for me in so many ways. You listen to my worries, hear my complaints, watch me strive to find my path, see me learn. You reassure me all will be well, give me advice, bring me back when I wander, nudge me in the right direction, stand back and watch me grow. We have a bond that only mothers and daughters can share. You understand me because you were once like me. Whenever something happens, I text or call you first. I know how to love, laugh, cry tears of joy and sadness because of you. I love those sappy Hallmark movies and, as of the past year, those sappy Mystery Hallmark movies that we watch together. You encourage me every day. You constantly remind me that I am a better writer than I sometimes think.

You were there at every game, cheering me on. You made sure I ate when I just wanted to do my homework. You taught me to soar as far and as high as I could go while reminding me you would be waiting when I returned. You held me when one of the horses bucked me off in front of the house and I ran crying inside to you. We shared special moments by volunteering together and helping others. I learned by watching you and how you handled different situations. You taught me many of my values. You showed me what true respect looks like. You poured yourself into nurturing me and raising me to be a good human being. I will forever be grateful for all that you have done, do, and will do for me. Thank you for being my favorite and only mom. I love you Mama!



Both of you have helped transform me into the woman I am today. I could not have done that without either of you. You introduced me to God from a young age, but never pressured me, only guiding. You allowed me to know, understand, and love God. I cannot imagine a world without Him. Thank you for giving me the best gift you could ever give me: my education. You pushed me to be the best I could be, encouraged me to aim high, caught me when I fell, and supported me the entire way. Both of you are the best parents I could ever ask for and I am grateful that I can call you Mom and Dad. I love you both!

Forever your favorite daughter,

‘Chelle

First Semester As A First Generation College Student

By comparison, high school was easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, and college is hard, hard, lemon difficult.

With just a little more than a month left in my first semester of college, I'm at a point that calls for reflection over the things that I've learned during the four months I've been at the University of Oklahoma.

Looking back at where I was around this time last year, I definitely would not have imagined myself where I am right now. I grew up with a desire to learn and lived for the aesthetic created by the neat column of A's on a report card, but I knew that it was one thing to be considered smart in high school, and something else entirely to be admitted into college and be able to thrive there. Despite the doubt, I held in regards to my self-efficacy skills, I knew that a college education would be detrimental to the progress I would make in my life.

In preparation for the college application process, I spent my high school years dividing my time between clubs that would give me leadership experience and trying to rack up enough points in AP courses that would bolster my GPA. Overall, I was academically successful; even when I felt like I was drowning in physics and crying as I finished my first big research paper the period before it was due (sorry Mrs. St. John), I managed to consistently crank out work that earned A's. Teachers and my parents' friends assured me that I was on track to continue my upward trajectory at a university and while it was reassuring to hear I wasn't so sure.

Fast-forward from the high I was riding December of last year when I received my letter of acceptance, to October of this year when I had two research papers due within a day of each other, I had bombed my first quiz, and was living off of an average of four hours of sleep each night, everything was hitting the fan. It felt like my self-doubts were warranted all along like I just didn't have anything in my head that my professors were probing my mind for. I felt like I had failed on the grandest scale; the stakes were raised, I had done all of the work to be there, I had made it halfway and I fumbled. I was so hard on myself for letting down my parents, scholarship donors, and anyone else I could think of, that I didn't even stop to consider the reality of the situation. What I didn't realize at the time was that the only person I had let down was myself and that I didn't do by blowing a quiz or even putting off papers; I was torturing myself with the idea that college leaves no room for imperfection.

Skip ahead about another month and I've come to fully understand my mistake now—and for those of you who were wondering; I wrote two bomb papers within 36 hours and my grades are fine but I still run on about four hours of sleep.

My first semester of college has taught me that although it is a time for students to grow exponentially, that process is not flawless. I have been challenged and I have met every one of them, maybe not with the results I would have liked every time, but I am most definitely growing as both a student and young adult.
