If Disney Princesses Chose College Majors

If Disney Princesses Chose College Majors

If they did go to school, here’s what the Disney princesses would major in. Would you see any of them in your classes?

My very first article I wrote for the Odyssey was If Disney Princesses Went to Texas Schools and since it was one of my favorite articles I've written I decided to elaborate more... Not only what schools the Princesses would chose to attend but what would they chose to major in...

Cinderella - Fashion Design, Minor in Horticulture

I feel like this is a great fit for Ella she loves sewing and did a great job with her mothers gown, she was always a dreamer and super creative so I think while she is in college she would want to do something fun where she could feel inspired. She also grew up as a farm/country girl so I feel like she would love to learn more about the Agricultural industry because it would remind her of how she grew up. Horticulture is the art or practice of garden cultivation and management.

Elsa - Meteorology

Queen Elsa loves the cold and tends to keep to herself. I could see her wanting to study changes in weather patterns, after all she can control them herself basically. Meteorology is the study of atmospheric sciences.

Rapunzel - Art Major

I feel like Punzie would be an amazing Artist after all she spent most of her life painting the stars and dreaming of leaving her tower. She's young and full of life and I think after being cooped up in that tower for so long, she is just dying for an opportunity to express herself.

Jasmine - International Studies with a Minor in Languages

I think this would be a perfect fit for Jasmine, all she ever wanted to get out of her palace and experience the world and different cultures... on the side I feel like she would also enjoy learning different languages from all over the world as well. International Studies captures the broad range of social, political, cultural, and economic forces at play in an increasingly interdependent world.

Anna - Communications and Journalism

This is no surprise but Anna loves to talk.. Therefore I think she would be an amazing Journalist, she's full of spunk and creativity. She also loves to socialize and be around others.

Moana - Oceanography

This is a no brainer, obviously Moana loves the ocean and Oceanography is the branch of science that deals with the physical and biological properties and phenomena of the sea.. She'll get to investigate the complex questions of the oceans' future, present and past. Just imagine How Far She'll Go in this feild!!

Merida - Sports Management

I feel like Merida would love to work in the sports industry, she loves being active while also being a good leader and learns from her mistakes. Sport Management looks at sports from a business perspective with the goal of entering the sport industry, which could also help her when it comes to leading her kingdom.

Mulan - Management with a Minor in Woman and Gender Studies

A management student develops the ability to plan, organize, make decisions, communicate, and lead effectively in a variety of work settings, this could not be more spot on for Mulan. She is all about teamwork, and problem solving while being a woman in guys world... literally. That's why it would be appropriate if she minored in women's and gender issues which has become very important to businesses these days and I think she would find the subject very interesting.

Tiana - Business

Tiana has always dreamed of owning her own restaurant. She's a great cook already so I'm sure she would love to learn a thing or two in college about running a business and being an independent business owner who runs her restaurant in New Orleans effectively.

Sleeping Beauty - Theater/Performance Studies

Aurora loves to sing and dance. Sometimes her grades can be a bit of a trouble for her since she’s gotten into the habit of sleeping through her classes... Sometimes she does manage to get out of bed in time for her super early classes. Her charisma, impeccable singing voice and sense of style turn heads all over campus.

Belle - Double Majoring in Mechanical Engineering and English

Belle is often described as a "beauty but a funny girl" and always has her nose stuck in a book. That's why I chose these two majors for her, Belle would be an outstanding student and could handle the vast course load that these two majors would throw at her. Obviously Belle loves to read, hence the English major. She is also an inventor who loves tinkering around with her father, hence the engineering degree. Mechanical Engineering deals with the design, construction, and use of machines.

Ariel - Archaeology

Ariel loves collecting things from various cultures all over the world and identifying their meaning/use in life, even though she wasn't always 100% accurate with identifying their uses (thanks Scuttle). Hopefully she's found out the real use for a "fork"... Archaeology focuses on the human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains.

Snow White - Education

Snow White is one of most selfless princesses. She worked so closely with the dwarves, as well as the other forest animals, which definitely prepared her for a career in teaching. Her soft-spoken yet stern manner would be perfect for spreading joy to children in the classroom. And possibly one day I could see her becoming a school guidance counselor.

Pocahontas - Rangeland Ecology and Management with a Minor in History

The Rangeland Ecology and Management degree focuses on the relationships between plants, soil, water, and the environment. I think this would be a perfect fit for Pocahontas she loves being outside and going on adventures. This major could educate her even more about the environment and keeping safe for future generations. Minoring in History would be appropriate for her because she’s very vocal and wants to ensure that every side of history is told.

And they lived happily ever after...

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:

“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:


When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:

"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

Things I Miss Now That I'm Home From College Again

There are so many reasons to be glad that the school year is over, but if you've done it right... there are a lot of reasons to miss it too.


So, school is over now and I've come home. As expected I was so relieved at first. No more showering with flip-flops, no more listening to screaming girls running up and down the hall, and a space that is mine and mine alone. But after a week or so of being back, there are a few things I've already started to miss.

I know that not every single person has the ideal roommate but I got really lucky with mine. Coming home I was excited to have my own space, but now when I'm doing my midnight scrolling, I'm realizing that I miss being able to talk to her about the funny things I see in that very moment. Tagging, DMing, and texting her doesn't feel the same as a long night of giggles spent together.

Also, while seeing old friends when you get home is amazing, and there is always a lot to catch up on, you do start to miss your other friends too. Being in college means that your friends are going through similar things as you are all the time. You have tests together, clubs together, and sometimes you spend way too much time procrastinating together. The bond you begin to form is one you definitely begin to miss - especially when you guys don't live close off of campus.

Coming home also means you don't have a set schedule or at least not immediately. You may come back to a previous job and that puts something on your calendar, but the free time you still have during the week can be a little too much. I know I've spent way too much time obsessing over the Tati/James drama than I ever would have at school. The routine I had at school kept me busy and entertained, and I'm honestly missing it a lot right now.

There are a lot of other things to miss too - even things you thought you wouldn't. You miss the classes, the teachers, and sometimes the food. I know I miss the environment. It isn't a perfect one, but it's full of people just trying to find their way. We are all working through the roller coaster of life and we are all stuck on one beautiful campus together while we figure it all out. I miss meeting new people at the bus stops or running into old classmates and catching up.

I guess the bonus for me is that I just finished sophomore year which means I have more time to spend at school. Come senior year, I guess I'll have to learn quickly how to deal without the things I miss - and also create a schedule so I can travel to see all of my friends, but those are all problems for future me.
