Funny College Halloween Costumes

51. Skittles Pox

Skittles have various ways to wear them as a costume and this particular outfit doesn’t even need to be exact to its origin. But the funniest way to wear it will definitely be by mocking the hilarious Skittles commercial! Bonus: if you carry extra sticky Skittles and stick them on those that eat the ones stuck on you!

Copy the look:

52. Mr. Clean

Would you watch a reality show with Mr. Clean? I think I would… Anyway, here’s a hilarious costume for the baldies and everyone willing to wear a bald cap all night. Don’t forget the cotton eyebrows!

Copy the look:

53. Ace Ventura

He honestly has so many looks that you can choose whichever, but this may be the most iconic. You can only wear this if you commit to acting like this character the entire night. Kidding… only half.

Copy the look:

54. The Belchers

The great thing about this costume is that you can be any character in a group or solo and can still be recognizable. This easy costume comes together with an apron and simple clothes you may already have. Complete this look with a self-made spice rack with some black tape and have those that may have missed this episode guess what it should be.

Copy the look:

55. The Son of Man

Art majors will love this and those that recognize it will love and appreciate this classic piece. This outfit is very simple and can still be recognizable if you choose to wear all black instead. If you have a hard time gluing the apple to the hat, get a printout and tape it. From a distance, you can’t tell it’s paper!

Copy the look:

66. Sims

One of the simplest and craftiest costumes on this list, this Sims accessory will have many fans wish they thought of this. There is really no requirement but one: that plumbob over their heads. You can wear any outfit you want, but I suggest shouting your favorite Simish phrases to authenticate your costume.

Copy the look:

57. Deviled Egg

I love a good costume pun. This may stump some people, but everyone will laugh when they realize what it is. This can also be worn in various ways, so get creative with these egg patches!

Copy the look:

58. Dinosaur

To meme or not to meme… Honestly, it’s worth the price and attention. This definitely requires character interaction, so be prepared for that. If not, there is always a regular dinosaur head that you can supply with various end-of-the-world jokes.

Copy the look:

59. Operation

This costume is great for a couple or a single costume! You can either wear a full nude bodysuit or clothes close to your skin tone. This one will require a little work in getting the pieces all together, but it will be the best costume of the night!

Copy the look:

60. Regina George

Let’s just hope no one already has this at your party or gather some friends and start the trend. Either way, you win and none for Gretchen Weiners. Bye.

Copy the look:

Cheap College Halloween Costumes

61. Powerpuff Girls

Everyone loves a good tv reference, so this is great for trios, but not necessary. You can even add an extra person for Professor Utonium. I’ve seen many interpretations for this set, but as long as you have the colors and Blossom’s signature bow, you can get away with many looks!

Copy the look:

62. Princess Morbucks

Or if you rather be a solo PPG character, look no further than the best villain money can buy. You can either be very fancy and get a great golden crown or create a simple one.

Copy the look:

63. Fortune teller

This is a very simple costume and great if you already have asymmetrical clothing. Wear all your jewelry and hair long with this one. Get this mood light ball instead of a crystal one to “predict” everyone’s future based on the color.

Copy the look:

64. Velma and Daphne

A classic friendship and best description for all friends, you can’t go wrong with this duo. Whether as a twosome or with the rest of the gang, this timeless costume will make the night a success.

Copy the look:

65. Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts

The most important question on this list. It’s all preference and definitely depends on what you order from either of these cafes. This costume has no requirement but to make it clear which side you are on.

Copy the look:

66. Bookworm

This one also has no costume requirement, but it can still be done. I recommend wearing mostly green and carrying around a stack of books if you can’t get them on your outfit. This may require some crafting, with which you can make books out of cardboard and glue them on. Either way, it shouldn’t be that hard to pull off!

Copy the look:

67. Willy Wonka

I don’t see enough of this outfit and it’s pretty sad. If there are any of these 50 Halloween costumes you need to do, it’s Willy Wonka. It’s so simple, it’s crazy!

Copy the look:

68. Grapes or Raspberry

This one is really cute, but not for those with an irrational fear of balloons. Actually, if you decide on this, it may be the scariest costume for some people. Either way, this simple costume will work wonders.

Copy the look:

69. Anna Wintour

Global fashion icon, Anna Wintour would be perfect if you’re already the most fashionable friend. This one is also great because it’s a general look and all in the attitude. Make sure you work it, girl!

Copy the look:

70. 1970s Disco

The 70s have been making a comeback for practically all of the 2000s, so let’s make sure we stay groovy! The best thing about this costume is that they are common, so they are usually the cheaper ones. Match these accessories with some bell bottoms and/or a flowery dress!

Copy the look:

71. Kim Possible and Shego (or Ron Stoppable)

The duo that could never be. Imagine if Kim and Shego got together and took over the world! These costumes are simple and don’t need too much work in them. If your duo is with Shego over Ron, pay attention to her makeup!

Copy the look:

72. Tourist

You might have to check your dad’s closet for this one. Another simple costume with variations, the essential accessories will let everyone know exactly who you are. Khaki shorts are preferred, but jean shorts work well. Carry a paper map and camera if you have them!

Copy the look:

73. Ladybug

A teacher favorite, this ladybug costume is too adorable not to include. You can add wings and glasses if you like. There are also full polka dot alternatives, but that is totally up to you.

Copy the look:

74. Crayons

Another costume that works great as a group but can be solo is dressing up as crayons! They are a cute and simple way to get into the Halloween spirit. You can wear your favorite color and be stylish in your Halloween costume!

Copy the look:

75. Carebears

Another costume I never see enough, and one idea that would be great for groups is dressing as Carebears! The costume itself is available as a onesie and would be great for those in areas where snow is near on Halloween. But if that’s not the case for you, it’s not hard to make this out of any crafts you can find.

Copy the look:

76. The Cheetah Girls

A group of 4 is required for this costume because it is when the girls were at their Cheetahlicious. The great thing about this costume is that the Cheetah Girls had many amazing looks, so if the sweatsuit isn’t your style, get that cheetah print!

Copy the look:

77. Rosie the Riveter

A simple and classic look, Rosie the Riveter! This has been interpreted in many ways and modernized in various styles. As long as you got the bandana and the flexed arm, you got this look ready!

Bob Ross, the first friend of many. Honor him by showing off your talents and remaining positive all night. Remember to make happy accidents with your friends!

Copy the look:

79. Arthur

Whether you’ve chosen this for the meme or because you loved Arthur, you’re sure to get some laughs and recognition. Simple and easy to put together, you can be solo or make a whole cast reenactment.

Copy the look:

80. Red Riding Hood

This classic has also been altered in various ways. As long as you have long red hair and a red hoodie, you can pull off this look easily! Wear a puffy dress for a classic look or all black with skinny jeans for a modern one.

Copy the look:

Last Minute/Easy Halloween Costumes for College Students

81. Pop Art

My favorite last-minute costume is definitely pop art because its focus is the make-up look. One year, I pulled a similar look together and grabbed a wig from the party store before walking into the party. It’s that easy!

Copy the look:

32. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy

Spongebob and Patrick are everyone’s favorite cartoon duo, but we can’t leave out Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Without them, Bikini Bottom would perish as we know it! While this costume has great small details, they’re not too necessary but could be self-made if preferred.

Copy the look:

83. Wednesday Adams

Classic and last minute, this costume is the best last-minute one. The only downfall may be that there are other Wednesday Adams, but ensure that you’re the best one with this skull collar chain.

Copy the look:

84. Pantone

If you have access to a printer, or just have good enough handwriting and some scissors, this last-minute costume is probably the easiest to wear. You can even be multiple Pantone chips if you don’t have a monochromatic outfit. You can also wear all black and have a big cardstock paper with color and the Pantone number with it. I have even seen someone make a dress out of many of the small cards, so you have options with this one.

Copy the look:

85. Modern Witch

With all of the awesome witchy shows the last couple of years, it’s not hard to pull off a modern witch look. All black is a requirement, but pointy hats are optional. This look has to be completed with black makeup and cute but dark accessories. Honestly, an everyday mood if you ask me.

Copy the look:

86. Cosmo and Wanda

I know we were all jealous that Timmy got two fairly odd parents. Still, I loved this show and this duo is great as a couple or a friend costume. Hair color is essential for this costume and the crowns and wands are probably the easiest you could make with yellow paper and some tape.

Copy the look:

87. Sun and Moon

This duo is another I hardly see but should be much more common. It’s very easy to get clothing for this costume, for it can be really anything silver/gray or gold/yellow. This definitely gives you the chance to get super creative, so get some silver or gold hair wax, along with various corresponding accessories!

Copy the look:

88. Devil and Angel

Another classic that you can get creative with. I recommend finding new ways to interpret the angel and devil, but this is a classic for a reason.

Copy the look:

89. Bratz Doll

Now the makeup aficionados should definitely do this look since it is makeup-based and should be worn as such. I have seen many Bratz-inspired looks and I was in awe, so a full costume would be spectacular because you can wear just about anything.

Copy the look:

90. Lisa Frank

This is definitely a quick outfit that doesn’t need too much preplanning or work, unless your wardrobe is not as colorful. You can make your own or purchase specific items like the wig, leggings and ears. It was at this point in the list where I wondered if my list was too 90s… Yet, I decided to include it anyway because I love it.

Copy the look:

91. Spooky Doll

Now on the completely opposite of the previous, this spooky doll look is great for those who are always cute and want to change it up. Get your cutest dress and a stuffed animal and scare people with your adorable serial killer voice. I know you’ve got one.

Copy the look:

92. Neon Clown

Another makeup heavy look, cause these 50 Halloween costumes need some variety, but this is the best because its an upgrade to a classic. This look can be completed with a sleek modern clown look or a traditional, but dark one. Think Pennywise meets Annabelle in Sabrina.

Copy the look:

93. Secret Service

This one is self-explanatory and works better as a group. If there are only two of you, take turns pretending to guard other people with no clear reason. If you stay in character most of the night, you may be the most memorable.

Copy the look:

44. Where’s Waldo/Wanda

An adorable couples costume, this will bring smiles no matter where you go. Dressing up as Waldo and Wanda is such a cute look and quite easy to put together! This couple just got matching shirts, hats and cameras!

Copy the look:

95. Silent Film Actor

This one is for sure with good timing, as the Silent Film era ended around the 1920s. Pay homage in the 2020s with this costume. Works better as a duo or group, but not impossible.

Copy the look:

96. Daria and Jane

I’m wearing a Daria shirt as I write this and it’s upsetting to realize that my best friend and I have not been Daria and Jane for Halloween. Disappointing really. Add Quinn, Trent, or Jodie if you like, but you clearly won’t need any of them. This look can go many different ways and you can wear it with your bestie, which is really all we ever want, right?

Copy the look:

97. Mario and Luigi

The Plumber Brothers have become the most iconic video game siblings ever and they will be recognized no matter how you wear them. If you feel creative, definitely twist this fashion around, switching big hats to caps and overalls with shimmery dresses. It’s all in the details with this one.

Copy the look:

98. Snow White

Disney princesses are nice, but sometimes they get repetitive. For these costumes, make sure you have your own spin on them, whether it be the style or the makeup. I think we all know someone whose dream it is to be a Disney princess one day, well this is their chance to shine!

Copy the look:

99. Belle

Same with Belle, but this may be easier to pull off just on a different dress style. All of the princesses can be modernized, so you don’t have to stick to just dresses!

Copy the look:

100. Netflix and Chill

Lastly, because it has to be done every year, I added the Netflix and chill look! This is definitely up to you and how lazy or creative you want to be since there are already shirts that have this printed, but there are cute patches to make it your own.

Copy the look:

How Can Literature Classes in College Help You in Life




Pages of Books

Much of the world’s historical cultures and traditions have been preserved in literary pieces that can be studied to learn about the older ways of life.

Most literary pieces contain encounters filled with various human experiences that help broaden one’s understanding of the world they live in. In a nutshell, studying literature courses can help you learn about various cultures and histories through commentaries, stories, and theories.

But, there’s more. Modern literature programs and classes are usually structured in ways that enable students to absorb a lot more.

This means that today’s literature programs can help students develop several transferable skills like essay writing, critical thinking, and more.

Thus, those students who study literature in college can learn several skills that can later be beneficial to employers. In this article, we will take a closer look at how literature classes in college can help you in life ahead.

But before we jump in, students reading this should also know that certain aspects of taking literature classes can be tough. For example, it is never easy to write great essays without a thorough knowledge of the process.

Thus, to perform better, students need all the help they can get.

Today, several digital platforms help students with their academic work. For example, students can use a top platform like Studyfy for their ‘help write my essay’ or ‘edit my essay’ services.

Using such services enables students to boost their academic performance while also giving them insights into their essay work.

In no particular order, here are 8 ways literature classes in college can help you in life.

1) You Can Improve Your Communication Skills

One of the best ways of learning to communicate better is through reading more. While studying literature, students need to continually read through various types of text like prose or poetry.

They are also provided with various study notes and are also encouraged to create their own.

Literature classes can also be very interactive and engaging. Most literature programs include discussions, debates, seminars, and more.

Overall, students would be able to learn better communication through more reading, listening, evaluating, and writing.


2) You Will Be Motivated to Weave Your Life’s Story

The main essence of any work of literature is that one can always find a story in them. This is because most literary pieces are created to record various events experienced in one’s body, mind, and surroundings.

And these experienced events are usually recorded as stories. Thus, reading more literary works can help mold the idea of ‘story creation’ early on in students.

And attending literature classes in college helps students understand the know-how of how it can be done.


3) It Can Help Improve Your Evaluation Skills

Studying literature properly is not just about plain and simple reading. But it also has a lot to do with being able to discern what one reads. And learning the art of discernment can improve one’s overall evaluation skills.

Being able to discern and evaluate then goes to help students communicate and write a whole lot better.

And this skill – of reading, evaluating, and understanding – is of paramount importance in the professional world.




4) You Can Become More Articulate

Most literary works are written in different styles because they are written by different people. And the more one reads, the more they would understand the complexities behind different writing styles.

But studying literature in college has more benefits than this.


Throughout one’s literature program, they will be put through various tests to gauge and improve their literary abilities. And one of the main abilities one can work upon is being more articulate.

This means that a good literature student would always include all the details when making any type of argument or point.


5) You Can Become a Better Writer

Yes, the ability to write well depends a lot on one’s imagination and frame of mind. But, to become a great or even good writer, one also needs to do a bit of reading.

This is because, without reading previous works, one will not be able to know the required standards for great pieces of text. And without it, one will not be able to write such that it grips their readers.

In the professional world, writers are some of the most well-paid workers. This is because they can convert heaps of information into understandable and engaging texts.

And this can help a business connect with its audience a whole lot more.


6) You Can Improve Your Interactive & Social Skills

Literature courses and programs are some of the most interactive ones around. Why? Because it involves a lot of discussions, debates, storytelling sessions, and more.

In any literature class, one can always find various types of commentaries and speeches from professors and students alike.

Literature students have the unique opportunity of digging deeper into various subject areas. And the best part is that they can do so with all of their peers together.

Learning such interactive and engagement skills from one’s classroom can help them greatly in their future careers.

7) It Can Improve Your English Skills – Better Grammar, Punctuation, & More

English is not only the most spoken but is also considered a standard language across several international communities. Thus, to grow to greater heights, sooner or later, one needs to brush up on their English skills.

Most literature programs and classes around the world are conducted in English. When one takes up a program in English, they have the opportunity of learning the language usage from the masters.

Thus, learning literature early on in life can profoundly improve one’s overall English skills, which can be crucial for career progression.


8) It Can Teach You Critical Thinking & Broaden Your Horizons

To efficiently power through a literature class or program, one needs to be able to contribute adequately. But one’s contribution is often seen as beneficial when they are also able to communicate their knowledge neatly.

A study of literature can achieve this by making students find various patterns and meanings in texts. Literature from various periods of the world also contains much information about historical cultures and traditions.

It can give a lot of insight to students about how people during different times in history were, what they did, how they thought, and more. This broadens one’s horizons and makes one look at the world in an autobiographical way.


The Bottom Line

There is no doubt that studying literature in college has several benefits for one’s life. But that being said, literature programs can be difficult in terms of learning and scoring higher grades easily. 

Students should learn beforehand about all the intricacies and semantics of their desired programs. Doing so would help them know which particular literature program would be the most suitable for them.

This post is all about the college packing list! 

Going away for college is the beginning of a brand new journey. You are leaving home behind for three or four months to live in a place that you have never been to before.

You now have to go to classes, move into your dorm room and receive a whole new set of responsibilities since you are off on your own. This is a big transition for any college student because you are going from having to abide by your parents’ rules to forming ones of your own.

Your parents will still check in with you and make sure you are okay, but now, in college, you are allowed to become independent and make your own decisions.

Now, it is your turn to have faith in yourself and make the right choices, starting with preparing what to pack away for college. You are going to be away from home for a whole semester, so you have to make sure that you have all of the things you need.

You need accessories to jazz up your dorm room. You need enough personal care products to last the entire semester. You have to make sure that all your school supplies are packed in your backpack and that you are up to date with the latest electronics.

If you are fortunate to have your own kitchen in your dorm, you must have all of the right tools with you so that you can learn to cook your meals on campus. Through this guide to packing what you have to bring to college, you will know exactly what you need and get you on the right track!

Final Thoughts on College Packing List

Getting ready to leave for college is an incredibly difficult task because you are essentially leaving behind the life you had always known, at least for a few months, to a brand new environment.

You will become mostly surrounded by people you have never met before and you have to rely on your own decision-making to solve problems that may arise in the upcoming semester.

It may seem very overwhelming and it is easy to become stressed out during this period, especially with the preparations before you leave for college.

You want to make you have everything you need before you are off on your own, which includes your personal care products, electronics, kitchen supplies, and dorm accessories.

Hopefully, this list has helped guide you in choosing the right items to bring!

Students taking notes in class

When taking notes in class, the most common way of taking them has always been with a paper and a pen, something that can be quite tiring and difficult to organize later.

In the middle of a class we may run out of ink, we may not have enough paper or we may not be able to write fast enough to keep up with the professor. And then after that, organizing the papers and folders can be a hassle.

For this reason and thanks to technology we can use our computer or our other various electronic devices to take notes in class. Taking notes from our devices can become something fundamental, since there are tools that allow us to have everything well organized and visually attractive. 

Having good notes is essential in the long run when studying a series of subjects to prepare for midterms and final exams. To ease the time consuming task of taking notes, we can take them on the different models of electronics such as a tablet, phone, or laptop.

So here I leave you with the 30 best note-taking apps of 2022 to stay focused and get keep up those important grades of yours!

Best Note Taking Apps for Mac (Ipad) 


1. Notability

notability app


Overview: Notability for iOS is a different notes app. And this is because it allows us to add written notes, both on its virtual or physical (external) keyboard and by hand thanks to the touch screen of the iPhone or iPad. It also allows for audio or graphic recording as well!



  • Capacity to insert audios directly into the notepad. Notability has the capacity to insert audio files such as recordings and voice memos into the notepad just as you´d import any other file. Adding content to the note while playing back the imported audio will sync that content with the recording.
  • Page scrolling: With Notability you can scroll the pages up and down, so if you are a fan of the traditional PDF reader you will love this.
  • Hyperlinks: Support for hyperlinks in typed text (web page addresses, phone numbers, emails).



  • Delete pages quickly: You can´t delete multiple pages quickly. Every page has to be independently selected and deleted via a tab menu. So that´s a major pain when you have to import a large document with many pages that you don’t want. 


Price: Notability is now free to download, and will require a $15 per year subscription—or $12 per year for a limited time—to unlock all of its features.


Platforms: Available for iPad, Mac, and iPhone


2. Simplenote



Overview: Simplenote is an easy way to take notes, create to-do lists, capture ideas, and more. Open the app, type a few lines, and you’re good to go. As your collection grows, keep it organized with tags and pins, and find what you need with instant search.


Since Simplenote will sync with your devices for free, your notes will be with you at all times.



  • Very simple: Simplenote’s user interface is kept to a minimum. There are no formatting toolbars or extra features like notebooks to group notes. The entire desktop interface is comprised of a sidebar containing your tags and trash filters, a list of existing notes with search, a button to add a new note, and a simple view for looking at an existing note or writing a new one.
  • Works Offline: Users can edit and create documents while offline, then sync their content the next time they connect to the internet. As a result, a user can work even when there is no data connection without fear of losing work.
  • Time Machine: Each note edit is kept so that the user can return to a prior version of the document. This way, if you make a mistake or accidentally erase something, you may easily restore the previous version.



  • Search is limited to one tag: There appears to be no way to locate notes with both tags X and Y. This isn’t a major concern until you have a lot of notes and want to run a cross-search for two topics at the same time to limit down your results.
  • No support for file attachments: Embedded attachments are not supported by Simplenote. This may limit the app’s usefulness for certain users, as many other note-taking apps include this capability.


Price: Simplenote is free to download, and Simplenote’s premium subscription costs $10 per year. 


Platforms: Available for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux, or in your browser.


3. Noteshelf

  • Personalize your notepads: You can choose a cover for each of them and choose between different types of pages.
  • Organize your notes into groups: Classify files within Noteshelf by folders.

5. GoodNotes



Overview: Beyond handwriting, the ability to illustrate our notes, to add documents, images or texts, GoodNotes has a key idea: notepads. With this simple idea, it is postulated as a substitute for paper notebooks.



  • Inking: The inking of GN5 is preferred over the inking of other note-taking apps. GN5 ink seems closer to the native iOS notes ink. 
  • Organization: Superior file management, folder structure, and folders within folders.
  • Shape Tool: The shape tool does not needlessly snap onto everything. The app does not dictate the decision of where to place each line. This gives you design freedom.
