Look within self to find perfect major

Brenna Wu

A lot of students come to USI without knowing exactly what to do. It took me almost a year to figure out exactly what I wanted to study and, to be honest, I am still not exactly 100 percent sure.

Some people within their majors are not 100 percent sure. It is advised that at the end of freshmen year students have at least a major in mind.

I know someone who is struggling to find a major that best suits her, and I tried throwing out some ideas that are just some common majors around campus, which did not work.

I then went an alternative route in suggesting things she may be good at, such as psychology or even education, because she is great with listening and giving out advice. She started to think about it and, at the end of our dinner, I believe she had a brand new idea of what she wants to do.

Finding a major to study is a very difficult process.

The University Division works hard with students to make sure they can find something to study within their years at USI.

There needs to be other methods, however, or ways to help these students find their way throughout school.

Workshops and counseling help students but it is ultimately up to them to find their true voice.

As a student, you have to look within yourself to see what are the best qualities you possess.

What are some of your favorite things to do when you are out in the world?

For me, I love helping people and helping them love life. That is why I chose Occupational Therapy.

Majors are out there for everyone. You just have to be willing to look within yourself to find it and bring it out to show the world.
