Start Thinking about Life After College

I know you may just be a freshman, but now is the time to start thinking about what major you want to focus on while you are in school. You don't want to wait until the pressure is on to then decide to choose a major. Use this time in your freshman year to investigate different career paths. Visit different departments on campus. Talk to the dean or a faculty member in those department to get a feel for what those majors are like. Make a visit to the Career Placement Center to research the outlook on jobs in various fields. Also take a look at your skills. What are you good at? What do you like to do? Don't be afraid of hard work. The work you have to do in a chosen field may seem hard but you can do it. You made it through your high school years didn't you? You can do this. But make sure you research what you want to do after college. And start early, not later.
