8 Thoughts That Will Cross Your Mind As A Science Major

A 60% exam grade? Sick I got the average score!


Hint: if you're in my 9 a.m. Friday discussion, I will be sitting in the back corner nearest to the door with an oversized hoodie and a plastic bag.

Being in one of the bigger programs, it's very easy to meet people experiencing your happiness as well as pain, and as a science major, I have plenty of both.

1. How is a 4 hour lab one credit..

Actually though, let me know the reasoning behind this.

2. Where do I even start in the real world?

I love science classes, but a lot of my time is spent doing work that has no push towards any one specific job. I've gone through half of undergrad and have less of an idea what I want to do when I graduate. Yay.

3. Yeah, I have a research position and ____.

Internships aren't as big of a thing, it's research position after research position. What am I researching? Honestly not really sure but that's what my job title says!

4. I got the average test grade!

We're just not going to focus on the fact it was a 61%.

5. I wish one semester I could have a decent looking Friday.

99% chance it's never going to happen. I guess STEM loves their Friday discussions, as I haven't had a semester yet where I can sleep in on Friday. Unless I ~forgot to set my alarm~, which oddly happened quite a bit.

6. What's my professors name again?

Me on the last day of school trying to do professor reviews. Big classes = never really meeting them.

7. When the hell am I ever going to use this?

Okay, so this one is mostly me in any math class ever. The word calculus alone gives me shivers, and even a basic statistics class had me throwing papers around. Let me know why I worked an hour on ONE problem, to come to the conclusion females ages 18-24 prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate. Thrilling.

8. At least I can go and talk to no one.

Half of my classes are 300 people, so if needed I can come late and just blend in in the back. It's great

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
