So, you are walking around campus and a friend of yours comes up to you and asks what you are majoring in.  You reluctantly tell them that you are Undeclared.  But why are you so reluctant to say that?  Is it such a bad thing?  I’m here to tell you that not only is there nothing wrong with you, but that you are totally normal.  It is totally common to not know exactly what you want to do with your life.  In fact, I’m 31 and am still not sure!  But what should you do if you find yourself in this situation?  Here are some tips to help you through the process. 

The first thing I would recommend to do is to ask yourself what your dream job is.  It can be anything, no holding back!  If you come up with an idea, run with it.  Find out what it takes to get there and see if that is congruent with what you want to do.  The more information you have, the better.  If you can’t come up with something, it’s no big deal.  Let’s sit down and talk about it.  Come in for an advising appointment and we can talk through it.  No matter what, don’t feel bad about all of this!  If you have some ideas but aren’t entirely sure how to tie them all together, I would recommend visiting the Career Center, located in the basement of the Campus Center.  They have great assessment tools that you use to help narrow your focus.  And after you do that, let’s talk about what you find out. 

The bottom line here is that it’s no big deal if you aren’t sure what you want to do or major in, it’s natural.  And we can get through this together, I promise!
