As you reach the end of your first year in college, you may begin to experience some anxiety related to your choice of a Major. Maybe you want to change your Major from English to Sociology, but wait Psychology is looking really good too… That is completely normal! Personally, it took me almost three years and multiple changes of my Major to finally settle on a Major that I loved. Or, possibly you have not chosen a Major yet, which also is completely normal.
