15 Things Only a Liberal Arts Student Can Relate To

Must read

If you’re used to people criticizing your choice of subjects in college.

If you find yourself loaded with assignments of subjects like “Haiku Poetry” or “Buddhist Philosophy.”

If you’re tired of being told that your dreams are impractical and, to a certain extent, unrealistic.

If people often tell you that you’re wasting your time and your parents’ money for a worthless degree.

If the course structure of your college is mysterious to most people.

Well, then, my friends, you are at a Liberal Arts College.

1. Always answering questions like “What is liberal arts?”

Like seriously, are you that dumb?

2. Being asked, “What job will you get after graduation?”

Oh! Come on, more than 80% of the youth of our country in ANY field doesn’t know what he will do in his future. Then why are we the only ones who are targeted with a questionnaire session?

3. Being thought of as “not being good enough.”

4. Getting the look that says, “How dare you to take up anything other than medical or engineering!”

5. Most of the time is spent on campus

6. Many people have no idea that your college exists

7. You have the weirdest combination of subjects

Yes, I am an English Literature major with Math as my minor. Got any problem with that?

8. Your friends in other colleges think you’re just having fun, not at all studying

9. Subjects like “Objects Out of Place-The Explained and the Unexplained” are a reality.

10. Everyone in your campus is a weirdo

We are a bunch of weirdoes and crazy sociopaths. We love that about ourselves.


11. Hanging out with professors outside class is actually fun

12. A class of just 5 students is no joke

And therefore, it is very likely that our professors know us all by our names.

13.Calling professors and seniors by their first name is no big deal

Why should it be a big deal after all?

14. Even Google trolls you

googleHey, who feels bad about being trolled by their best friend? Don’t we all laugh it off!

15. Do you regret your decision to pursue Liberal Arts?

About 99% of the time, we don’t. We followed our hearts, and we are proud of ourselves for doing so.


But at the end of the day, this is your “Wonderland,” and there’s nowhere else we’d rather be.
