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.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.
