What are creative ways to have high school students exposed to college majors?
I think it's difficult to figure out what major you want to select for college when you have little to none exposure to those majors. I'm unsure of what I want to do in life.

A common misconception is that you have to have it all figured out and make that choice long before you get to college. Not true! If you don't know, that's OK. I always suggest to my college freshmen "take one of everything, you'll figure it out in the first couple terms, and then change your mind at the beginning of junior year" =). The best way to "get exposed" is to buckle down and do some heavy research. Follow the steps below.
Danielle recommends the following next steps:
There are too many possibilities in life. You're never going to be able to explore them all. Hopefully by now you have some idea of who you are and who you want to be, as a person, not as a profession. The key is to figure out how to take who you are, who you want to be, and express it in the major of your choice. To do that, research and shadowing and all of the stuff the ladies mention will be helpful.
Best wishes on your journey,
