Best piece of advice for students exploring majors

Finding a major that fits you can be hard work, but it can also be fun, too! It is a process where you spend more time thinking about what makes you, you and what unique skills and interests you have and want to develop. Considering classes, work, volunteering, and hobbies that excite you is a great place to start. Don't be afraid to try various majors "on" to see how they feel.
