Spencer’s Answer

Samantha, Please don't feel pressured to blaze through school. I was in college for 6 years. All 6 spent getting my Bachelors degree. I would not change the way I spent my college years. I learned so much and I was able to see several different job markets. I really feel that I got my pick of the litter. Maybe pick 3 majors you're are interested in and take a class from each of those. majors? I think that was helpful.

Marilyn’s Answer

Samantha,

Absolutely not do you need to know what career you want that early. Most freshman classes are basic for most majors. They leave you opportunity for some electives and that is a good way to see if those areas are interesting to you. Just be sure to take the required courses and that leaves you leeway to decide. Most people are going to have multiple jobs in their lives anyway, so learn all you can about any of your interests! Just be sure to take the required courses for college when you are in high school.

Best of luck,

Marilyn Lowry

Christi’s Answer

Dear Samantha, I understand that college can be confusing and scary because it seems like you have to have everything figured out. However, you do not have to know what you want to do during your first year or even your second because you are taking basic classes and exploring different fields of study. In addition, you can do summer internships and volunteer to get an idea of what you want to do.
