If The Cast Of 'Friends' Attended LSU, This Is What They'd Major In

College is more difficult depending on majors and the cast of "Friends" understands that.

"Friends" is a show that I have watched since probably 10 years old. I had no clue that I would learn some valuable advice from the show and that it would actually help me through college. I mean what better way to learn about your upcoming major or current major is going to be than learning from this cast? So let the cast of "Friends" guide you and possibly make you laugh at your college major.

1. Business


Business is fairly difficult so you get asked if you are OK a good bit. This is your usual reaction. You may be too drunk to cope or just be delusional from late night studying. Whatever your case may be, you can pretty much relate to Ross. He is very successful other than his many divorces so maybe this is something you can look forward to in the future. Just hold on and keep studying.

2. Social Work


If you are social work or anything related you can understand Phoebe in this situation. You feel the need to cry when you see most of these cases and if you don't cry you are keeping it inside. This is just something that social workers have to deal with on a daily basis. You also can relate to Phoebe when she gave birth to her brother's children. She got extremely attached to the children and honestly wanted to keep one. This may be you in almost every case you look at.

3. Agriculture


Honestly, I don't know much about agriculture majors but this is what I see when I think of it. If you love animals as much as Chandler and Joey you might be an ag major. They loved their duck and chick so much they may have taken on agriculture classes. If you share their love for fury farm animals you are going to be a great animal mom/dad one day.

4. Pre Law


If you are pre-law you have to learn how to argue. If you can't argue Joey has given you a phrase you might be able to use. Joey may not have always been right but he would use what he had until he didn't have it anymore. This is much related to law school. Study just as much but maybe take some lessons from Joey.

5. Criminology


If you are a criminology major you can probably relate to this episode. If you were in the back seat scared and staring or in the front seat trying to play it cool. You honestly may be both. Whatever you are, this episode relates to you. You can pull a Joey and save the day. Who knew he was actually trying to save his sandwich though? Not Ross that is for sure.

6. Theater


Now, this you can be a mix between Chandler or Joey. Chandler burst into random dances when he gets excited but Joey lives the life of a star. You can honestly relate to both. Keep pushing like Joey did and you can become a successful actor, singer, dancer, etc.

7. Any science major


If you are a science major you can relate and may have used this saying once or twice before. Ross was extremely intelligent and used that to his advantage. He could probably help you remember a thing or two for a test. Catch up on a few episodes and study for an exam based on Ross' excellence.

8. Geology


I took one geology class and absolutely hated it. I don't see how you guys do it but props to you. You may get called a freak like Ross and you may have a solid answer, however, Ross just accepted the fact he may have been. You can completely relate to Ross and how he was made fun of for being a paleontologist. You may not be in your major to become a paleontologist but it is in the general field. So good luck.

9. Pre-Dental


If you are pre-dental or even considering it, this will be you with some of your patients. The dentist's office is a place most people fear so you will not always be liked and they will not always be calm. Sometimes you may have to be a Phoebe Buffay and that is OK. The patients will eventually calm down.

10. Math


Anyone who watches friends knows the real meaning behind this. But it still involved numbers and numbers are math. She was very persistent in everything she did and so are math majors. They are always on top of things just like Monica and never lose. If you are a math major, you are Monica.

11. Engineering


You may be asking yourself this question if you are going into an engineering major. Yes, they make a lot of money but those classes are difficult. Each person has their own reasonings. However, you may ask this to yourself about every week. You can definitely relate to Ross on this one. If you have a good answer to this question, I don't know but you will need some luck!

12. Early Childhood Education


If you are early childhood education you can probably relate to the relationship between Rachel and Ben. You have to watch what you do and say around them because they will pick up anything and everything extremely fast. Good luck to the future teachers. Children are a lot to handle. Take it from Rachel. Ben learned a lot in this episode.

"Friends" is a show that honestly everyone can relate to. Especially college students. These are a few majors at LSU that are told by the people we watched growing up. It doesn't matter if you are a Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, or Joey we will all relate in this crazy world.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
