Stereotypes Of NGU Majors


Stereotypes Of NGU Majors

Here at North Greenville University, the students are far more stereotypical than at most other colleges. Here, the groups and cliques are so prevalent, you don't even have to guess what group someone belongs to. From English kids to Biology buffs, everyone fits perfectly into their own group. The cliques generally revolve around major, so here are the highlights.

1. The Mass Comm Kids

These are our future news reporters, sound technicians, journalists, and pretty much the coolest kids in school. (Or they at least have the coolest Instagram accounts.)

2. English (aka the grammar Nazis.)

Don't use incorrect grammar around these students. (Or ask them how to use the MLA format.)

3. Health and Wellness/Sports Management

These students are almost constantly wearing athletic gear and drinking chocolate milk. Why? Because they either just got done working out, are about to work out, or they just love chocolate milk.

4. Biology or Math

These students are so smart they ace all their tests while also consistently being asked to be a tutor. Their response will more than likely be: "I'm sorry, but I'm taking 22 hours this semester with three labs."

5. Marketing/Business

Ahhh, business majors. They are nicely dressed, well spoken, and oh so handy in Intro to Information Tech class.

6. Christian Studies

Feeling down in the dumps? Don't worry, you can rely on a Christian studies major to brighten your day with their constant smiles and kind words of encouragement.

7. Theater

The easiest way to sum up this major is: If you see someone wearing a fedora, 10 times out of 10 they are a theater major.

8. Spanish (Español)

These students speak Spanish all the time. It only gets confusing when they switch back and forth between languages. Sigh ... I've always wanted to be bilingual.

9. Education

Education majors are the most encouraging people you'll ever run into. Their classes consist of a majority of girls, brightly colored backpacks, and glue sticks.

10. ODEL

Last but not least, outdoor leadership. These are the easiest to pick out. Why? Many of them forget their shoes on a daily basis.

North Greenville, as you can tell, is full of unique people. Keep doing you, NGU.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
