Lilly’s Answer

I love to be well rounded. College is the perfect time to explore your interests, especially when you first start out! I loved taking philosophy courses, communication... Those are just broad subjects. Sometimes there are really cool classes out there like ones about anime, women in the Bible, video game characters... Explore and learn all you can, but of course always stay focused and make sure you are successful in the classes for your major.

Lilly recommends the following next steps:

Look for a list of classes offered at a few different colleges you are interested in. Look at their list of classes offered and see what catches your interest!

Hi Michael,

This is all dependent on your interests and what career path you would like to pursue. Generally, Universities will want you to do 2 or so years of general education [History, sciences, math etc..]

For your major courses, these will be more applicable to what degree you will acquire. If you have an interest in say Business, you could pursue Business courses such as Business ethics, Management, economics and so on. If you are interested in Engineering, there is many different branches such as electrical engineering, chemical engineering, or mechanical you could choose from.

It all depends on what your interest of study is. If you are interested in accounting, Math will be one of them. If a health program is your area of interest, sciences will definitely be one of them.

Michael’s Answer

As many have said, it depends on your interests...but also, now is the time to see if there are topics you might enjoy but just have not gotten enough forced exposure to!

Kim's answer regarding any type of logic class is spot on as far as I'm concerned. Also, one that flies under the radar that I really thought was interesting, as well as many of my friends, is a class in linguistics. Understanding the origin story of languages is fascinating. Especially when you see how interconnected so many languages are.

I'd selfishly suggest you take a closer look there :)

Pamela’s Answer

As others have stated I think it depends on what you like. For me, I really liked the psychology classes, and the Earth Science studies. I went on a field trip and found fossils which was pretty amazing. One I found ended up being sent to a museum for further study. The psychology courses were intriguing in that they helped me understand others and in fact, myself. Look into what you can take up front those first couple of years. Also look to see what is offered otherwise that you can choose as an elective. Part of college is getting to know yourself better. Sign up for some things that interest you and see what happens!

Atul’s Answer

I do not know what is your major so first two years you will have to take required courses set by Univ before focusing on your major last 2 years.
Having read Lee Iaccoca - Chrysler/Ford CEO autobiography - he mentioned that even though he was studying Engineering at Lehigh Univ - he was very grateful to take Psychology 101 course where he learned to read people face/expressions to make an informed decision when he was running these two companies.

I also suggest take courses in English writing which will help you in your professional life.
Writing succinctly is an art and not too many people possess this quality.

Lastly, public speaking is very important- if you cannot stand in front of your audience to deliver what you are trying to convey - it is all wasted efforts.
