We hope you are enjoying your winter break! Now that the holidays are over, are you looking for something to do? We have some suggestions to make use of your time before jumping back into a full semester of classes.
Still need to pick a major?
- Use Major Finder to learn more about the many majors UD has. You can also check out the Career Outcomes page for information about our graduates per major.
- Take the PathwayU assessments and explore your career matches to see what majors might be a good fit.
- If you have narrowed down your search to a handful of majors, use the catalog to see what the requirements are for each major. Knowing which classes you can choose from or are required to take might help you decide. If you have questions about certain requirements, ask your UST advisor. Make sure to choose the catalog for the school year you started at UD.
Plan ahead for your travels.
If you know you want to study abroad or go on an alternative break, the time to start planning is now! Explore the various study abroad options on their website. The programs only go through Fall 2020, but seeing what has been offered is a good indication of what might be offered in future semesters.
Now is also a good time to work on your resume.
Internships are not just for your junior and senior years. The more experience you have, the better! Even if you aren’t planning on applying to internships and part-time jobs this summer, it is a good idea to build a proper resume now to see what areas you might need to work on. It is also a document that takes time; a good one cannot be thrown together last minute. Check out the Career Center’s website for information on how to get started.
Check your Spring semester schedule.
Make sure you are enrolled in a full schedule of courses (minimum 12 credits; around 15 credits recommended). If there are any courses you need to repeat, make the proper adjustments. If you have not already passed ENGL110 or your first-year seminar, they need to be completed in the Spring. UST advisors are here all winter, and we still have drop-in hours. If you have any questions, reach out to your advisor!
