Changing your major: the aftermath

Changing your major can be one of the most stressful moments in an undergraduates career. Thinking back to when I was 17, applying for college and selecting my major, I really didnt have any idea what I wanted to do for a career. I started out my Freshman year thinking to myself that I wanted to be a physical therapist when I grow up. I enjoyed the Biology classes, but was barely passing any of my Chemistry courses.

I wanted to change my major and I thought that I was failing at college because I didn't have my whole life planned out. At the time I thought to myself, "Is this the time that I drop out of college and move back in with my parents for the rest of my life?". It took me till the end of my Sophomore year to finally take initiative and try to switch my major.

I talked to my advisor and by my Junior year I was on track to graduating with a degree that I love. I'm here to tell you that if you want to change your major, do it! I was lucky enough to get an in-depth interview with two undergrad students that attend Ohio University. Below I am going to share their success stories post-major change.

But first...

If you're thinking about changing your major, you're not alone. The majority of undergraduate students change their major throughout their college career. There are things you can do to prepare yourself for the switch, and I advise you to talk to someone so you have a little help along the way. Some people you could talk to include:

  • Family member
  • Counselor
  • Friends/Roommates
  • Advisor
  • Teacher

Don't let the stigma that changing your major is embarrassing or wrong in any way. There are people out there that will help you through the whole process!

Running towards Nike

As my time here at Ohio University is coming to a close, the burning question that everyone wants to ask arises; what do you want to do now? Since I’m graduating in December of 2015 I still have some time to decide where I want to start my career path, so my close relatives and friends can stay off of my back for a little while. When people do ask, I tell them that my ultimate dream job is to work for Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.
