Describe your process for choosing your current major/majors of interest. Were there any resources you utilized to help you?
When I first came to college I was sure that I wanted to be a marketing major. Quickly as I started to learn more about business classes I noticed that they were very math-heavy. It was then that I made the decision to move forward with communications, and I couldn’t be happier. This was all thanks to the help of Adrian McCleary, who guided me during my major selection.
What are you involved in outside of the classroom?
Outside of the classroom I am involved with UDress and Rent the Runway. I am very passionate about both of these organizations and love to talk about my experience with them. Additionally, I am a social media manager for a medical spa.
What advice do you have for new or prospective UST students?
Trust your gut and know when something feels right and something doesn’t. I think oftentimes when we first get to college we put too much pressure on ourselves to find the right major that will make us most “successful”. I think it’s important to know what your interests are and being open to change when it comes about.
