Best piece of advice for students exploring majors

Be patient with yourself and try not to judge your decisions too quickly or harshly. Choosing a major is both a complex and exciting process, and is good practice for making other decisions later in life. Enjoy the exploration and cherish any opportunity to learn more about yourself and your values.
