With season eight of “Game of Thrones” premiering last week, we’ve reunited with our favorite Westerosi houses after almost two years of waiting, but have you ever wondered what kind of students they’d be if you dropped them in Oxford? Luckily for you, we’ve taken a few of your favorite lords and ladies and given them their respective Ole Miss majors.
Daenerys Targaryen — Foreign Language and Public Policy
There’s no doubt that Daenerys is a Croftie. Picture this: the dragon queen is perched in a rocking chair on the Croft porch, ranting about foreign policy. If you’re lucky enough to have a public policy class with her, and you differ in opinions, she will not hesitate to find out what ASB position you’re running for and purposefully run against you.
Cersei Lannister — Finance
There’s a reason that the Lannisters are the richest family in Westeros. Cersei’s entire life consists of crunching numbers in accounting classes and looking for the best summer internship possible — especially if she knows it’s going to be better than yours. She has “#BossBabe” in her Instagram bio and sells beauty products via direct messages.
Tyrion Lannister — Psychology, Pre-Law
Tyrion is one of those people who can basically read your mind just by looking at your facial expression. Don’t be surprised if you spot him on the third floor of the JD Williams library, surrounded by empty Starbucks cups. Freshmen walk into orientation hoping to be in his group, and any frat party planned by Tyrion Lannister gets talked about for at least three months.
Jon Snow — Undeclared
Jon is that senior that has taken every possible pre-req in the course catalog but still doesn’t have a major. He frequently says, “I don’t know what I want to do in my life, but I do know what I don’t.” He’s honestly really overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to start. I think we all can relate.
Arya Stark — Pre-Med
This girl can slice someone’s face off and not flinch, so she belongs in a bio lab. Arya also practically lives in the Honors College dungeon. She enjoys reporting non-Honors kids for being in the building after 5 p.m. and feels personally attacked when others leave a mess in the kitchen.
