“My adviser helped me solve a lot of questions about choosing courses and how to plan out my academic career. I have been meeting with my adviser consistently just to make sure I am on the right track at the UW, and also I got so much good advice about how to thrive in college.”Jimmy's Story

I took a few classes that sounded interesting and tried to look for things that I wanted to learn about. I wanted my major and career to involve something I was interested in and passionate about. I decided to double major in Psychology and Linguistics because they were open-ended enough to not limit me to one future path, but still focused enough to gain skills and knowledge useful for future positions. Try to remember that a bachelor's degree does not mark out your entire life plan - you will always be able to do something different.
