Syllabus Week Explained by RuPaul's Drag Race

The fall semester is upon us whether we like it or not. Syllabus week and the beginning of the semester signal a fresh start-- getting back to the grind. Check out some of the best and worst moments of the beginning of a new semester explained by the beautiful queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race. If you’ve never seen it, RuPaul’s Drag Race is a competition reality show featuring drag (which stands for DRessed as A Girl - Shakespeare) queens competing for the title and platform of America’s Next Drag Superstar and a cash prize of $100,000. Some of their most colorful and iconic quotes perfectly represent our feelings about the incoming semester.
