Picking a major depicts your future career goals. In order to succeed in the major and pursuing a career, there are guidelines you need to follow and classes you need to take to complete the major successfully. In order to also complete the classes in a successful manner, it is an option to go see a counselor—they are very helpful. They help you choose the appropriate classes and they will also help you avoid taking the wrong classes. Your major is what helps you find what you love to do. You may think that you have a passion for a certain major, but taking classes in college helps you find what is suitable for you. College is a place to find yourself and what major is right for you. It’s about discovering where your major and career will lead you in life.
Greetings students! Being a college student is a lot more complex than most would think. You learn a lot about yourself as a person and as a student. Some of the best advice I can give you as you pursue college is to explore your talents! Get involved in things that interest you or explore new things you aren’t familiar with. You may think you know exactly what you want to do with your life now, but things can and do change. I myself was a Criminology, Law & Society major in college and ended up pursuing my Master’s degree in Counseling focusing on Student Development in Higher Education. My experiences before, during, and after college all played a role in me changing career directions. One thing I am most proud of is that I let myself evolve and accepted my true passion—education. There is a saying “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” This holds true for me and probably will for most of you. Use your natural skills and talents to do something you are passionate about and you will be fulfilled in your educational, career, and personal lives too!
First of all come to college with an open mind. This is a time in your life when you will be exposed to all sorts of new things. Take time to absorb them. You shouldn’t waste time, because after all college is expensive but I recommend taking classes that interest you. And when you find something you love, run with it. You’ll be happier if you do. Just take your time and don’t feel pressured to know exactly what you want to do both in college and after. After all, we’re young and we have the rest of our lives to figure that out.
