“I really enjoyed my science classes in elementary, middle, and high school, and I knew that, in college, I wanted to major in a science. In [PYSCH 101], I learned how psychology is a science and how it uses the scientific method to study the mind and behavior.”

“My advice to students is to get as many and as diverse experiences as you possibly can…Part of knowing what your purpose is also knowing what it isn’t. If you try something and find that it’s not for you, you shouldn’t view that experience as a waste of your time. Most likely, you will have learned something from that experience that will help you in the future, either personally or professionally.”
