Making Connections

Choosing a career can be both exciting and intimidating. Most students are unsure about what to major in, and it is common for students to change their minds about a major or career. While some careers, like nursing or engineering, require a specific undergraduate major, many industries and employers welcome students in all majors. There are a lot of great ways to learn about careers, and make connections to successful alumni and professionals to help expand your network.
