8 Types of People You Find Over Break-Which one are you?


1. The Lazy One

They haven’t even thought about creating their schedule for the next semester. They have flipped the same shirt inside out for the past four days instead of changing it, and has no idea what day it is. They talk in grumbles making it barely understandable. They used to have a pet fish…

2. The Sleeper

The one that wakes up between 12:00PM and 4:00PM just to grab the leftover Papa John’s from two nights ago. They don’t even bother to heat the pizza up. After they brush their teeth they wash their mouth out with Mountain Dew and then go back to bed.

3. The Netflixer

You’ve seen it, they’ve watched it. They spend their break binge watching shows. They have watched Breaking Bad in one sitting, rewatched The Office three times, and can tell you every movie Kevin Bacon is in- but still isn’t caught up on his shows.

4. The Productive One

They could either be working 8 hours/day or applying to tons of internships. Sleeping in is impossible for this person. They never sleep past 8AM. As soon as they wake up they make a cup of coffee, open up their laptop, and begin to work. You probably won’t see them spending time with family and old friends at all.

5. The Vacationer

The one that has been talking about their amazing trip for the past two months. As soon as they get home they begin packing for their flight to Cancun, the Bahamas, and Hawaii. They originally took a flight, but came back on a cruise ship. No one knows how they did it. They are all too jealous to even bother asking.

6. The Social One

That friend that you had study hall with that hits you up a month before break just to squeeze in plans to go to some hipster cafe with you. This person doesn’t have any time to do anything but tell you everything about their life.

7. The Visitor

This person goes back to their high school so they can “catch up” with their old teachers. It’s like he never left.You open Instagram and you see a selfie of this person and their favorite teacher captioned: “Reunited with my fav!” You’ll roll your eyes, but not as hard as their teacher did seeing him come back for the third time this week.

8. The Gymer

The one that has a daily fitness routine. They wake up at the crack of dawn, blend their protein shakes, and then they’re on their way to the gym. Rest days don’t exist for them. Their entire break consists of them posting pictures of their progress captioned, “New year, New me” on their social media accounts.

Here Are a Few Penn State Class Recommendations

Hope you’re all excited to start a Penn State career with upcoming New Student Orientation! Selecting your first college courses can be daunting, however, here is a list of recommended classes to fill up your first schedule. If you’re reading this and are not a new student, take the time to read this list and get ideas for filling up your schedule! These classes are great regardless of academic year:


1.English 15

A very basic, required class that most students are happy to start with in their schedules. Not only does it help your writing skills, this beginner English course helps prepare you for the amount of effort you will have to put into your classes.

2. Cas 100

This class usually goes hand in hand with English 15 and is a required course. In fact, most students taking summer session will schedule this with English 15. With many college courses, students find themselves tasked with making speeches for a large portion of the final grade. This class will help prepare you for what is to come and the professor’s will help you with your public speaking.

3. Sociology 119

This class satisfies General Science, US Cultures, and Bachelor of Arts requirements. A huge part of college education is building perspective and learning how to think critically. This class combines both features to help educate about social issues. The professor, Dr. Sam Richards, is known for his intellectual lectures saying, ““The best I can do is challenge everyone’s assumptions in equal measure. Nobody should ever walk away from my class without engaging in some sort of argument with me in their head.”

4. Horticulture 150: Plants in the Human Context

In need of a natural science class? Look no further than Dennis Decoteau’s class where you will learn about plant’s importances in everyday lives. Not only is it interesting, but the professor is known for caring about his students and making sure that everyone understands the material.

5. ENT 202: The Inset Connection

Still need a general science class and find plants a bit boring? Hopefully this class is a little more interesting with learning about insects and the various roles they have in the world. Even if you’re squeamish about bugs, overcome your fear and learn that these little guys actually can have a huge impact on the planet.

6. Kines 72: Fitness Walking

Since not everyone is athletically inclined, Fitness Walking is a great class for a required kinesiology credit. It’s a great way to learn time management, explore campus, and actually improve your stride. Since this is considered “fitness”, you will break a sweat in this class. Not to worry as it is a great and easy way to stay active during the week to help avoid the Freshmen 15.
