Dean's Office Events
The Major Decision (and some words about minors too)
Date, Time, Location | TBA
Most sophomores feel some uncertainty about deciding and declaring a major. Some are still completely undecided; some think they know but still feel a little uncertain. Some may know their major but are uncertain about how to choose or work with a major adviser. Some are considering double majors. And when it comes to optional minors, there are lots of the same questions. We'll bring together some experts (a dean, a peer mentor, a faculty member) to share their insights, field your questions, and facilitate a conversation so that sophomores can also help each other.
