1. Maintenance will come to your apartment with little or no notice.

2. Everything is white.

3. The people at the front desk don't know the answers to half your questions.

4. Answers range from person to person at the front desk.

5. Charge ridiculous fees. 

6. Too much advertising.

7. They will send emails to you saying you will be evicted if you don't pay your rent soon, but you paid it on time, a while ago. 

8. Your friends have to add their devices to your account in order to use your WiFi. 

9. When everyone else's pools are open in April, ours doesn't open until May. 

10. Bathrooms are tiny.

11. Not much kitchen cabinet space.

12. When you order a maintenance request, they take forever to fix whatever needs to be fixed. 

If you want to live somewhere, I would pay more to stay somewhere nicer. It'd be worth it.

If College Majors Were Characters From 'The Office'

Is your major Michael Scott?
125409
views

Every major has a stereotype associated with it, as does every character from any given television program. This could not be more true for the characters from "The Office"; coincidentally, many of these stereotypes overlap with the most common majors in college.

1. Psychology - Toby Flenderson

Being able to understand human beings and how they function is a key part of a psychology major, and Toby is one of the few people on "The Office" who can actually do that.

2. Business/Management - Michael Scott

Of course, business/management majors are the embodiment of Michael Scott. Your companies need you to function, and there's no shame in being a little cocky and full of it; after all, you are the boss.

3. Communications/Journalism - Jim Halpert

Jim Halpert

Comm and journalism majors have to be great with people, and Jim Halpert most definitely is. These majors have to be able to communicate well and have great interpersonal relationship skills and are usually pretty social.

4. Education - Phyllis Vance

Like Phyllis, education majors, especially those in psych/special ed, have to be patient and kind. When dealing with children and teenagers, you have to know when to be sweet and when to be stern, but never rude.

5. Math (Accounting/Applied/Finances) - Oscar Martinez

Math majors are smart and know how to get the job done. They sometimes tend to focus on their work more than their social lives, but never will they let work overtake their social lives. Oscar is the embodiment of a math major in the sense that he is dedicated to his accounting position at Dunder Mifflin, but knows when to take a break and do something for himself.

6. College Drop-Out - Meredith Palmer

College just did not work out with these types of people, for whatever reason. Perhaps you were a wild child, like Meredith, or classes did not go well. Whatever the case may be, college drop-outs will not stand idle and be happy with unemployment, despite not having a college degree.

7. Poli-Sci/Criminal Justice - Creed Bratton

Poli-sci majors tend to know how the law works and maybe know some more interesting facts about our country's paralegal system. Creed most certainly has his quirks, but that man does seem to know his way around the legal system.

8. Undecided - Erin Hannon

Erin Hannon

Undecided college students are just not sure yet on what they want to pursue, and that is okay! Like Erin, they tend to go with the flow, and maybe something will fall in their lap and inspire them, or maybe they need to go out and try things to figure their lives out. Either or, college is there for them to enjoy.

9. Computer Science/IT - Dwight Schrute

Dwight and computer science/information technologies majors have this characteristic in common: they are highly analytical. Perhaps they may come across as inhuman or robotic, but never doubt their intellectual prowess.

10. Nursing - Angela Martin

While Angela does not necessarily come across as a 'warm and fuzzy' human being, she does know how to care for her cats and does have a soft side, just like nursing majors. They both also know how to best take charge of a hectic situation and turn it into a better outcome.

11. English (Literature/Writing/Theatre) - Andy Bernard

Perhaps English majors were the oddballs in their families and friend groups due to their affinity for literature and theatre. Andy definitely was the black sheep of his family at Dunder Mifflin, but like English majors, he chose to pursue his dream in acting and performing and following the arts.

12. Culinary Arts - Kevin Malone

Kevin Malone

Culinary arts majors know their way around a kitchen and around food. Just like Kevin, food is delicious and should be savored and praised. Culinary arts majors may also have a special dish in their repertoire (hint hint: Kevin's Famous Chili).

13. Marketing - Ryan Howard

Marketing majors like to be in-the-know about sales and know how to make a good sales pitch. While Ryan technically went to business school, perhaps he would have succeeded more in marketing as he definitely knew how to spin things around to work in his favor.

14. Visual Arts - Pam Beesly

Our lovely Pam knew her way around a graphic design program and was skillful with a paintbrush. If there was ever the perfect major for her, it would be visual arts.

15. Fashion - Kelly Kapoor

Kelly, like most fashion majors, always kept up with the latest fashion trends. That woman knew how to online shop like a boss, but also aspired to be bigger and better than just a woman obsessed with clothes.

16. Public Relations - Darryl Philbin

Public relations majors need to be good with the public. They need to know how to handle a heated situation, but also how to boost morale during hard times. Darryl has every quality necessary to be a successful PR major with his down-to-earth personality and amazing interpersonal skills.

17. Never Went to College - Stanley Hudson

There is always the person who just opts not to go to college. They did not drop out, they just decided to not go in the first place. Of course, they expect the lectures about how "without a college degree they will go nowhere in life," but like Stanley, they know not to take any crap and to defend themselves.

The Tea On The 16th Annual OSCARs Award Results

Every year, the University of Washington, Tacoma branch hosts the Outstanding Student Ceremony for Awards and Recognition (OSCARs). This year, the results would cause not only applause, but soft murmurs of questions and irritation.

On Friday May 17 the University of Washington Tacoma held their 16th annual OSCARs award ceremony at the University YMCA at 7 p.m. and the room was filled with tables, great food and a wonderful stage. The purpose of the OSCARs is to celebrate the hard work of the students, staff and faculty that make up the University of Washington Tacoma campus. There are some categories where students are able to vote for who they think deserves the award, and there are others where the staff and faculty vote for who they think deserves the award. Nominations were accepted until April 12 at 12 p.m. and the students could vote between April 15 and April 30.

Throughout the ceremony there were cheers, laughter, hugs and pictures. But what most didn't notice were the soft murmurs humming between guests at various tables.

A few questions as the evening went on that arised from table to table were as followed;

"How many times have they gone up there?"

"Are there any new names on there? They all look the same."

"Is it just the same people over and over again?"

"Hasn't that person already won, like, three awards already?"

After attending and hearing the celebration, murmurs and noticing the names appearing on the screen becoming more and more familiar due to the repetition of the names presented, a pique of curiosity inspired some digging.

The following list were the categories provided on the OSCARs program.

OSCARs Program

A total of 29 categories had awards, recognition or certificates that were given to students only. Within some of these categories, but not all, were multiple sections of the award such as the Husky Volunteers Awards which had the Silver, Purple and Gold awards depending on the number of service hours. Within some of these categories multiple people received awards, certificates or recognition such as the ASUWT President's Award which was given to two different individuals.

In the OSCARs 29 categories there were 21 awards, one certificate and seven recognitions. Within the 29 categories there were 35 sections.

Of the 21 awards, they were given away to four groups and 76 individuals. In the certificate category, it was given to seven individuals and of the seven recognition categories 49 individuals and the graduating class of 2019 were recognized.

In total four groups received awards and 132 individuals received awards, certificates and recognition.

Of the 132 individuals that received awards, certificates and recognition 62 individuals received awards. seven received certificates, and 46 individuals received recognition.

However, the results can be broken down even further.

One individual received four awards and one recognition.

Two individuals received three awards each.

Three individuals received two awards and one recognition each.

Five individuals received two awards each.

Six individuals received one award and one recognition each.

Five people received one award and one certificate each.

One person received one award, one certificate and two recognitions.

One person received one award, one certificate and one recognition.

One person received one award and two recognitions.

Two people received two recognitions.

With that broken down, that means that out of the 132 individuals who received awards, recognition and certificates that only 38 individuals received just one award, nobody received just one certificate, and only 31 people received just one recognition.

To see the difference, 69 out of 132 students received one award or recognition and 27 out of 132 students received more than one award, recognition, certificate or some combination. Or about 52 percent of the individuals received one award or recognition and about 20 percent received more than one award, recognition, certificate or some combination.

While the decisions are final and carefully made, the ceremony was beautiful and overall a fun celebration of student and staff success. However, the repetitiveness of the nominees and individuals that had received a combination of multiple awards, recognitions and certificates had some audience members confused, baffled and irritated leaving them with questions rather than a sense of celebratory satisfaction.
