Is it recommended to go in as undecided into college?

Asked San Bernardino, California

I know you have to do general ed the first 2 years but is it an advantage if you name your major before going in? #college #college-bound #undecided

Hi Eunice, Good question! Going into college as an undecided major is completely fine! Your first year of college is a great time to explore as many different fields/majors as possible. In fact, some colleges and universities do not allow students to declare their major until their sophomore year of college. Now, if you plan on majoring in a field that takes a little longer to complete (such as pre-med), declaring early could be helpful. Otherwise, I would suggest taking at least the first semester to explore different courses.
