Choosing a Career or Major

Posted by Matthew

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.

Career/Major options

Posted by Adam

As a high school senior I was very interested in government and my favorite class was U.S. Government. Therefore, when I applied to colleges during my senior year I knew I wanted to apply as a Political Science major. My advice would be to pursue a major in something you’re passionate about or to apply undeclared in order to discover what your interests are during your first two years of college since you typically don’t have to declare a major until your junior or third year of college.

What I’d Tell My Freshman Self

Posted by Jade

There is a cliché phrase that “hindsight is always 20/20,” meaning that when you look back on things you always see them differently and are wiser than you were before. Some helpful tips I would give to myself and anyone as a freshman in college would be the following:

  • Make friends—it will ease your transition and make you more confident
  • Live on campus—it’s a good way to make friends and become acclimated to the campus
  • Study abroad—it’s an excellent experience to travel and study in a different country
  • Seek help early—don’t wait until you’re in your 3rd year to go see an academic advisor
  • Choose your schedule wisely and don’t be afraid to change your major; the average person changes careers 3 to 4 times, so feel free to explore early on in college!
