Ok, The UC system (where I work and study) goes back into session next week. As such I thought I'd share some strange things I have noticed in my (admittedly far too long) academic career.

History Majors have a hard time staying on topic. (Tangents are our stock in trade)

Political Science Majors will argue with you about ANYTHING.

Philosophy Majors will also argue with you about anything, the difference is, you won't understand what the hell they're talking about.

You can tell the women who are in the natural sciences (Botany, Geology, Biology, etc...) because they are the ones who regardless of the fashion du jour, always dress for the field, and wear sensible shoes around campus. (which actually makes them more attractive in my book)

Business majors are already convinced that while you will be starving in the street, they will be raking in the dough, and they're not afraid to let you know.

You can tell the pre-med students by their pale complexions (they don't get out of the classroom much)

Feel free to add your own...
