Changing Your Major—It’s Normal

So recently I decided to change my path to “adulthood,” if you will, when I decided to change my major and add a minor. I was that kid in high school who told everyone that I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do in college and after. My friends would always say, “You’ll change your major, trust me.” And I was set out to prove them wrong.

But you know what, they were right. It’s okay to come to college and still not know what you want to do in college. There’s an undeclared major for a reason, so use it if you feel like you can’t make a decision.

For me, I took a little longer than I would have hoped. If Business is something that interests you like it does me, then you’ll have to make sure you apply to the College of Business by the end of your freshman year because of how competitive it is. I decided to go for Economics with a minor in Business. I’m glad I finally figured it all out, but it wasn’t exactly how I planned. Plans do not really work in college. You’ll have to go with the flow. But don’t worry too much about it, because you’ll end up where you are supposed to—trust me.
