Back to school!  
So spicyhippofood had an idea for a college back-to-school theme. I love the idea of themes (a la crucifixation 's idea), so I thought I'd give this one a whirl:

NEVER- I repeat NEVER show up to class like this.

I don't care how tired you are. At least put on some jeans. Or a skirt! You'll look twice as classy, I promise.

You're going to get an A in Computer Science or Mechanical Engineering, so you might as well dress like it.

This look is exceptionally common among unknowing freshmen who just signed up for your school because the pictures on the pamphlets looked similar to some summer resort they went to with their parents one time. Definitely still Undecided Major.

The "I'm-From-California-What-Do-You-Mean-It-Snows-In-Boston" look

Your typical "I'm not studying THAT much cuz my band's totally going to take off" student. Business Major because her mom told her to. Open mic night junkie. Also a common English or Art Major look.

Another open mic night junkie, but she either does slam poetry or acoustic protest songs. Environmental Studies or Philosophy major. Frequents all local farmer's markets, blues festivals, poetry readings, and art gallery openings. Keeps saying how much better it'd be stoned.

Creative writing or Art or Animation major. Wears black. 90% of the time spotted with a knit hat. Usually seen around coffee shops or toting a handy dandy mug. Bonus points if the mug matches too.

Drama or Theater major. Always obsessed with a new accessory she found in the costume department. Half of them wear red lipstick because it helps them "get into character". *shrugs* I don't know what character either.

Different from your rock band devoutee above, the Music Major is always busy. She's got her nose in a music score 24/7 and can be heard singing through her choir part half way down the hall. I don't know how, but even through all that, all of them look extremely polished. It's the need to be ready to go on stage at any second. Note the red lipstick prevalence here too. There was a girl in my choir last semester who'd wear it every day.

The "Last-Night's-Party-Was-BOMB" look. Usually seen as upperclassmen in your undergrad GE classes. Undecided or Liberal Studies Major.

Business or International Relations Major. Seriously, these people are pretty much constantly on their way to one meeting or another. Note the cheesy smile. The only people on campus wearing suits. (Not even profs do, man)

History or R.O.T.C. Major. History majors have the urge to nerd out and wear things that look historical, even if it only slightly looks it. Be sure to bring it up that she looks like General E. Lee and she'll chat your ear off and be your new best friend. R.O.T.C. people? They always look like they've been cut out of marble, they're so serious. That is the military for you, though...

The "One-Chick-Who-Is-WAY-Into-College-Sports" look. Campus is littered with these types during homecoming. Only the true douches keep it up all year. The sports team t-shirts only come out on laundry day. Communications Major.
:P Alright, your turn! Go ahead and post college stereotype looks, outfits for different kinds of majors, or simply a few ideas for what you'll wear to the first class this fall!

;__; oh my god I laughed so hard; I've seen SO many of these outfits littered around school. I'm excited to do this theme.

Bwahaha NO! Please state what you will be wearing this fall and make up "classes" that you will be "taking". Like your "looking for a job 101" and "teasing my brother 47A" XD

Either that or make outfits for all the schools you COULD have gone to. Beauty school outfit, law school outfit, art school outfit...etc. There's so many ideas out there!

Ahh, merci! :D
