Your Go-To 'Syllabus Week Outfit,' According To Your College Major

Your Go-To 'Syllabus Week Outfit,' According To Your College Major

Your professor's eyes versus your eyes.

For many of you, syllabus week is the most boring and fraught week of your college career.

You are figuring out if your schedule fits your lifestyle, if you actually want to take this certain class because the professor is apparently “easy”, or that you signed up for classes last minute and you are trying to get your shit together. And of course, you do not want to dress the part of your major. But, a great deal of professors like to see you dress in the appropriate uniform.

Let’s imagine for a second and see what you would be wearing according to your major in your professor's eyes versus what you would want to wear instead.

1. Business Majors

In your professor's eyes, "dress for success" is the way to go. But, no one wants to dress like that for class during syllabus week. You would want to wear a basic tee, jeans/sweats, and finishing off with your favorite pair of Nikes.

2. Nursing Majors

Scrubs. That's what your professor would want you to wear to class just so you can get the feel of it. You, on the other hand, would want to wear an outfit that feels like you're wearing scrubs but not wearing scrubs.

3. Biology Majors

You're most likely are taking a lab course for your Biology major and you have to wear the suitable gear for safety precautions. Sometimes the lab coat can get old and all you want to do is wear a tee with something on it that says you love science.

4. Psychology Majors

Dressing in business casual attire can get old and who has the money to buy it for the semester?! Professors don't put that into perspective, especially during syllabus week. You just want to wear a reverse psychology shirt to mess with people's minds and possibly your own.

5. Criminal Justice/Political Science

Professors definitely want you to dress the part of this major to be taken seriously. But, you just want to dress in the Ivy League university sweatshirt that you may get accepted to along with some leggings during syllabus week.

6. Education Majors

No student likes to dress casual for class (no matter how cute the outfit is). Just throw on a cute shirt that states you're a teacher and you are good to go.

7. Engineering Majors

This one was hard but you have all different aspects of engineers. Your professor would like to see you struggle with what to wear for your major, anyway. You, on the other hand, would just like to wear a tracksuit and call it a day.

8. Finance/Accounting Majors

Your professor's eyes would be fond of you sporting the daily suit or pencil skirt. Your eyes would be crisscrossed because you are an accounting major.

9. Communications/Journalism Majors

The way your professor pictures your major outfit is something you would see on the streets of Manhattan. But, you just want to wear your high-waisted Mom jeans with your knock-off Gucci loafers.

10. Fashion Design Majors

Face it. You are the one who is always stylish whatever you put on. A lazy outfit is not in your vocabulary and closet. Keep doing you, boo!

11. Film, Video, and Photography Majors

Your professor would like to see you have on a baggy button-up and ankled pants with a director film hat. Since you are a free spirit, you wear every article of clothing in your closet and just roll with it.

10 Underrated Beauty Gurus You Need To Follow

There are so many talented artists out there, and some of them deserve way more credit than they get!

There are more beauty influencers out in the social media world now, then there ever have been. Though I love the OG gurus, there are so many underrated artists that need more credit than they're given.

1. @cakedfacednatalia

On her Instagram, she has a very consistent style, and it works so well!

2. @dulceravelo

Cut creases are very hard to do, but she has mastered it!

3. @artistrybyjeremy

Jeremy is such a diverse artist and has such a talent that I look up to, and really feel inspired from.

4. @jmarie_mua

This lovely MUA uses tons of different styles to her looks, whether it be pops of color, neutral tones, or lots of glitter.

5. @dominicubana_

This look literally makes me want to hate her, because its perfect. She's so talented!!

6. @cjcmua

This MUA's use of color is beyond genius, and her blending skills are the best I've ever seen. Look at how flawless this is!


Flawless skin is something that is so hard to achieve, especially when you're wearing full coverage makeup, but Dymante makes it look so effortless.

8. @jacesfx

This avant-garde look is only the beginning of what amazing talents this MUA holds.

9. @iadrianamakeup

This MUA does spot-on recreation of other fabulous gurus looks, but always puts a little twist of her own in there.

10. @makeuplooksli

This artist does amazing things with her looks and is probably the most creative and detailed MUA out there.

I feel as though so many artists are extremely talented, but don't have the number of followers they deserve. This is just a small list of hundreds of amazing MUA's, so try to branch out from the typical artists and try finding someone new!
