Loyola Maryland's Most Common Majors As 'GOT' Houses
Start writing a post

1. House Lannister: Political Science majors

"Hear me roar." - Hear my political rant.

As most know, PoliSci majors are one of the most interesting kind of friends. Like the Lannisters, they are more than ready to hand out lectures on the relations between countries or even make fun of your political predictions. There is no one more equipped to nullify your argument and make their voice be heard above everyone else's.

2. House Stark: Biology & Chemistry majors

"Winter is coming." - MCAT is coming.

This breed of college student is the most stressed out of them all. Besides being forced to take a numerous science courses, most are always so stressed about pre-med stuff. It's like they can always see the MCAT looming over them. The damn test could be more than two years away, but they just cant seem to talk about anything else.

3. House Baratheon: Communications majors

"Ours is the fury." - Ours is the social scene.

These students are like the antithesis of science majors. Comm. majors are the coolest kind of friends, always hitting up Power Plant and knowing where the hangout is on any given day. It's not like they don't study, it's just that their workload is flexible enough for them to be able to indulge in the pleasures of things such as Messed-Up Mondays, Turnt Tuesdays, Wasted Wednesdays, Thirsty Thursdays and so on.

4. House Targaryen: German Studies major

"Fire and Blood" - Deutscher und nicht Geschichte

Yes, there is a German Studies major on campus. As you may have noticed, there is only one student on campus who is currently following that track, just like the Targaryens are almost extinct. So, next time you run into the kid, don't just assume he's a history major. German studies is a thing, saying otherwise is just rude.

5. House Frey: Psychology majors

"Sworn to Tully." - Sworn to my awesome, laid-back course requirements.

This is probably one of the most popular majors on campus. Everywhere I go, there always seems to be one or two who just pop up in the conversation. In my experience, some Psych majors have been previous Biology or Chemistry majors who just did not want to deal with the obscene amount of course requirements. They have all the science and the fun, without the asphyxiating schedule. So, in my mind, they're all laughing at the science majors like, "Suckas, I escaped that sinking ship semesters ago!"

6. House Tully: Speech Pathology majors

"Family. Duty. Honor." - Why. Is. Newman. So. Far.

This is another very popular major on campus. So I have one huge question, why is the department so far away? If I were a SpeechPath major, I would just cry every time I had to take a course and walk all the way to Newman.

7. House Martell: Engineering majors

"Unbowed, unbent, unbroken." - I will not, let Calculus, kill me.

They are nothing short of superheroes. Calc 1 is a struggle for most people and Calc 2 is a drag, but you guys have to make it to Calc 4 and such. I feel you, you are my champions, because I would never be able to do what you guys do on a daily basis.

8. House Tyrell: Business majors

"Growing strong." - Learning to manage dem moneyz.

Just walking into Sellinger makes me feel expensive. Cheers to you for studying in one of the nation's most highly ranked business schools! But really, I feel like you are all being groomed to be the most well-resourced graduates in all of Westeros. And don't let PoliSci majors bully you, they just feel like you guys are stealing their thunder (just like the Lannisters and Martells in the show).

9. House Arryn: Writing majors

"As high as honor." - As picky as if we knew what we're doing.

I think that the best words that could describe a writing major are protective and picky. We are all proud of our work, not matter the major. However, writing majors have a very distinct love and jealousy for their work. And another really interesting quality of most writing majors is their pickiness when editing. Every single detail is scrutinized to achieve eloquence, or at least that's what most think.

Still, majors don't really define us, because most of the personality traits attached to them are just stereotypes. At the end of the day, we're individually excellent in our own fields. And above all, we're all pretty awesome Greyhounds. Give yourselves a round of applause.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

5 Ways To Cope With Election Day Anxiety

The 2020 presidential election is less than a week away, and if that doesn't scare you, I don't know what will.


We all know that this year's election will be different in more ways than we can count. Insert quote about unprecedented times here 🙂.

For those of us with anxious tendencies, this election will be more stressful than most, and I think a lot of people will agree when I say that I'm dreading election day. The constant poll-checking, projections from analysts, and 24/7 news coverage will be enough to have any sane person ripping their hair out.

Halloween is days away and that means that November is basically here, aka the holiday season. I love Halloween movies, preferably the ones that are more cute or funny than innately scary.

This week I know I have been bingeing my favorites, and you need to add some of these to your list if you need to get in the last minute Halloween spooky spirit.

Don't get me wrong, we definitely saw some red flags from Clare in episodes one and two of this season of "The Bachelorette," but after (spoiler alert) Yosef got sent home last night, she's quickly become the villain of her own season, waving some pretty bright red flags we can no longer ignore.

To get more specific, last night Chris Harrison told the guys they'd all be getting dates after Clare canceled the cocktail party following the fight with Yosef (please let this be the last time I have to think about this a**hole). Unfortunately for the men, Clare also ended up completely ditching the first group date she promised them. Yes, that's right, she stood up the men who were supposed to have a fun day with her and showed up hours later without an apology (or a reason).
