Although many students step aside from their studies for the summer, their passion for their major remains during these months of respite. The Daily Texan has compiled a list predicting students’ Independence Day festivities based on their areas of academic interest.

School of Architecture

The edifices of early America remain these students’ favorite element of our country’s history. They’re conversing with fellow architecture students over the highlights of Washington, D.C.’s illustrious architecture scene.


College of Liberal Arts

Although they’re not enrolled in summer classes, they cannot help spouting Founding Father facts and bragging about their poignant analyses in their last United States history term paper.

College of Natural Science

They wave sparklers across the night sky, guessing their chemical composition to create their own mini fireworks spectacle.

College of Fine Arts

“The Star-Spangled Banner” garners a reputation as exceedingly difficult to belt in the proper pitch. However, these performers remain confident they can serenade their friends with the song’s final deafening note.

Cockrell School of Engineering

These forward-thinkers are preparing to unveil their solar-powered hotdog grill, perfect for the scorching summer season.

College of Nursing

If anyone succumbs to any firework-related injuries, student nurses are there to save the day with nothing but a first aid kit and a myriad of medical knowledge.

Steve Hicks School of Social Work

If any drama sparks along with the fireworks, they’ll be there to diffuse any heated debates between friends.

College of Pharmacy

The gathering they’re attending continues late into the night, so aspiring pharmacists are offering over-the-counter caffeine pills to anyone living the most patriotic night of the year to the fullest. 

LBJ School of Public Affairs

Public affairs majors can’t celebrate America’s birthday without discussing the upcoming election. As long as everyone is amicable, there is no issue holding a mock debate while grilling a premium selection of meats.

Dell Medical School

Future physicians explain the nutrient breakdown of hotdogs, and it’s making everyone hesitate from indulging in their next bite. 

School of Law

Attorneys-to-be have the constitution memorized and are reciting it as an impressive party trick.

Jackson School of Geoscience

The founding of America is instrumental to how Americans live their lives today, but these rock enthusiasts’ favorite history is prehistoric. They’re educating their friends on all the dinosaurs that roamed the continental U.S. long before Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence.

School of Information

Informatics majors use their online sleuthing skills to recreate the best barbecue recipe the internet has to offer.

Moody College of Communication

Media-minded students test out how their new state-of-the-art video camera records the vibrant display of red, white and blue fireworks across the pitch black night.

College of Education

Before student teaching commences, education majors must soak in every moment of the summer by relaxing poolside with a comforting book in hand. 

McCombs School of Business

Those with an interest in corporate environments have a tendency of befriending every pool party attendee and calling every conversation they engage in “networking.”
