Where You Should Travel Based On Your Major

You deserve a vacation suited for your brain!

918

This list is in alphabetical order, by major. Try to find your specialization!

1. Aerospace Engineering: The Moon

https://giphy.com/gifs/nasa-apollo-mission-14-3o72FkTQbDO8vREFhe

Okay, this seems utterly nutty, but it is possible. Starting in 2018 (that's right, this year!), SpaceX is offering up quaint little trips to our little reflective night-buddy. Tickets have already been sold to the first two tourists, who will explore a destination that is truly out of this world. Outer space is rad to everyone, but is perhaps just a little cooler to those who have dedicated their lives to studying the galaxy and staring at the stars in a mathematical way. Best part? This vacation will only cost you $150 million. Pocket change or ROCKET change? Ugh, that was bad - I deeply APOLLO-gize. Okay, I'm done.

2. Architecture: Vienna, Austria

​Any future-architect out there deserves to feel like royalty! Now is the time surround yourself with feats of human design and send yourself back to medieval ages with sky-scraping towers and moats straight out of a storybook. And there's no better place than Austria for this unforgettable vacation.

3. Art: Florence, Italy

https://giphy.com/gifs/art-venice-getty-museum-eYqNISozxCANi

My sweet summer artists out there, you were meant to express yourself - who better to learn from than legendary Italian artists like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, or Donatello?! And those were just the Ninja Turtles! There are more (like Caravaggio and Giotto). There must be something in the pasta over there to inspire so much creativity. So, what are you waiting for? Go and paint with the greats.

4. Biology: Port Douglas, Australia

https://giphy.com/gifs/water-turtle-gopro-CJ4X6xbmMrwk0

G'day mate! Biology majors should adore being among the vibrant life in the stunning Great Barrier Reef.

5. Business: Singapore

https://giphy.com/gifs/timelapse-singapore-DP0zRwQKtlqda

Despite its tiny geographic size, Singapore is one of the leading economic and cultural influences of Asia. It conducts respectful business dealings and renews itself in industry every second. Business majors will be enlivened by the buzz of a growing and thriving atmosphere. This place has nonstop city lights shining almost as bright as your future!

6. Civil Engineering: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

https://giphy.com/gifs/timelapse-photography-2YD2AaRkOfKww

Dubai is the epic success story of the Middle East. They essentially pulled themselves up by their bootstraps and built a major cosmopolitan center in the last thirty years, and every civil engineer will be floored by the math behind its skyline. The U.A.E. has the world's tallest building: the Burj Khalifa, in which you can zoom up 160 stories! Tell everyone "Du-BAI" and have yourself some much needed futuristic fun! (I'm sorry for that pun).

7. Communication or Journalism: New York City, New York

https://giphy.com/gifs/city-new-york-8uiZLn37DZIXu

Communication and journalism majors itch for a big city fix to match their high energy, (I would know). Home to the most revered newspaper and magazine publications, New York has been waiting for you. Take a bite out of the big apple and experience the greatest city in the world for all of its quirks on this vacation!

8. Computer Science: San Francisco, California

https://giphy.com/gifs/hitchcock-novak-parallelz-RR88G8gxVJDKU

Not only does San Fran have the culture, the food, and the nightlife you would expect from a beautiful California town, it also is home to the most tech companies per capita. Surround yourself with robots, coding, and lots of signature pizza and you are guaranteed to have a good time. Why not work for an exciting start up on this trip!

9. Education: Seoul, South Korea

https://giphy.com/gifs/exo-luhan-outfit-lTWlVOPEbg1JC

South Korea oozes wonder and deluxe experiences. As the U.S. is currently realizing, South Korea does a lot of things right: food, music, and ...education! Future-teachers can see a new and incredible culture and learn from a different classroom approach of this country that yields a whooping 93% of on-time high school graduation rate.

10. English: Oxford, England

https://giphy.com/gifs/shakespeare-oRfKrv2eTF6Hm

Anglophiles know that all the true classics of English literature were birthed in the Motherland. From William Shakespeare to Charles Dickens to Jane Austen to C.S. Lewis, British writers have inspired Western culture and, thus, inspired you to write! If you're enthralled by books, Oxford is the perfect place to vacation and brush up on your reading and writing skills.

11. Fashion Design: Paris, France

http://media.giphy.com/media/aIFjd0I5BR7EI/giphy.gif

The most romantic city. You know, the one refines taste and starts trends. Paris will make you fall in LOURVE. Strut on by for Paris Fashion Week and have the classiest vacation of your life.

12. Film Studies: Mumbai, India

https://giphy.com/gifs/bollywood-holi-yeh-jawaani-hai-deewani-3otPoqJNk4MDfdL9Qc

Hollywood's younger and more delightful sister, so-called "Bollywood", is the perfect place to travel for future directors and actors. A rich and colorful society, good grub, and a movie-industry (that we can all dance to) equal a heavenly recipe for a trip of a lifetime!

13. Geology: Maui, Hawaii

https://giphy.com/gifs/disney-pixar-disney-lava-R3fgEuBh1KXm0

I don't really have to convince you to go to Hawaii, do I? It has views and volcanic activity that make for all the igneous fun that you can handle - which totally ROCKS.

14. Healthcare: Vancouver, Canada

https://giphy.com/gifs/canada-robin-williams-HVTJBh1JyhZq8

Free medical care and poutine. Enough said.

15. History: Giza, Egypt

https://giphy.com/gifs/pyramids-JEri4fOQAm0Vy

History majors should come here and transport themselves back to approximately 3150 BC, when ancient Egypt was created and civilization was transformed forever!

16. Marketing: Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida

https://giphy.com/gifs/happy-fourth-of-july-disneyworld-dykd-yYcziBgUkxEUo

Let's be honest, we are all controlled by the Big Mouse. I live for the Disney culture. Walt Disney was a marketing genius and this place is a testament to his strategy. However, this does not dull the shine of the Happiest Place On Earth! Like in advertisements, here, they think of everything, from pumping out vanilla scents into the air to all the Mickey-shaped foods. Disney makes you feel a sweet nostalgia all vacation long.

17. Photography and Graphic Design: Jokulsarlon, Iceland

https://giphy.com/gifs/northern-lights-srSbd4PwdJOkU

Someone with an eye for aesthetic and a good camera must pay Iceland a visit during aurora borealis (or, the northern lights)! During this, photography and graphic design majors are able to capture the gorgeousness of the night; they can simply reach up and touch the very heavens that give them a personal color show.

18. Political Science: Washington D.C.

https://giphy.com/gifs/civil-rights-march-on-washington-the-3o6ZsVuQw2StpwojGE

Future-presidents! Do not wait, this vacation will educate and it is totally first-rate. Museums and democracy galore!

19. Psychology: Berlin, Germany

https://giphy.com/gifs/germany-berlin-german-3ohfFmyp5Rm9aDNhMQ

Germany is totally neat by itself, but it is a bonus that this country is known as the founding place of modern psychology. Pioneers like Wilhelm Wundt, Sigmund Freud, and Kurt Lewin practiced here! So, come on down to good ol' Deutschland!

20. Sports Management: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

https://giphy.com/gifs/brazil-germany-3xz2BD13oXdHdIsuFq

In this vibrant country, football rules and "Christ the Redeemer" reigns.

21. Theology: Jerusalem, Israel

https://giphy.com/gifs/jerusalem-1SszYJLL1kMScpmrnf

Jerusalem is the holiest city in the world for three of the biggest religions in the world (Judaism, Islam, and Christianity). Those interested in the study of God must come to the home of the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and for funsies, float in the Dead Sea.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

Founders Of Color Q&A: Yarlap's MaryEllen Reider On Destigmatizing Women's Health

The father-daughter duo co-founded the brand and has since generated a passionate, dedicated community of women.

MaryEllen Reider

I was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college. Since then, I had the luxury of being able to witness her evolution from the faithful companion I went to my first job fair with to the woman who is now a pioneer in destigmatizing the portrayal of women's reproductive health.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
