Almost anyone, if not everyone, consciously or unconsciously “nerds out” about something. Being a nerd, according to Merriam Webster’s definition, is “one [that is] slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits.” Coinciding with this definition, being a nerd can be interpreted as expanding past the stereotypical computer nerd. For example, a nerd can be someone that finds sports statistics interesting and/or follows a specific sports team. On the other end of the spectrum, a nerd can be the stereotypical individual that is knowledgeable about succeeding in academics.

By definition, anyone can be a nerd as long as they use their time to be in the know about a certain subject. Most students may associate a negative connotation with being a nerd, but it seems that everyone is a nerd about something.
