GRAPHIC DESIGN

ALECIA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"Take every opportunity to explore as many classes, clubs, part time jobs, volunteer work, and any other experiences that are put in front of you while you are still in high school. Ask people in your life about their jobs. If you have any role models, look into what they do for a living. Asking lots of questions and getting a variety of experience will help you learn more about yourself, and will help you decide on a career/college major."

DIANA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! College is the time to learn more about yourself and branch out from familiarity. There are so many opportunities for you to try new things, make new friends, and maybe pick up an unexpected major, minor, or hobby."

SOCIOLOGY & ECONOMICS

SAMANTHA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"Begin thinking of what you want to pursue as a career or what you want to major in as you are picking a college. It's okay to not have it all planned out (I certainly didn't) but having even a vague idea can go a long way. Turn "undecided" to being a process of actually searching for what you are passionate about. Even jotting down types of assignments you like to do in school and what you like about your extracurriculars. While you do not necessarily need to pick a college based on their major offerings and educational program, knowing what you are leaning toward will be hugely valuable. "

"Remember that everything regarding college admissions happens for a reason, you will end up at the school and program that is right for you! You may not understand it at the moment, but it will piece together and be a place of growth and opportunity for you."

AVA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"Get professionally involved in your interests early: either, you'll find out you hate the subject-as-a-career and wont waste time and money in school on it; or you'll find you love it and start getting experience within it."

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

ISABELLA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"It's okay to not have everything figured out yet! Everyone is growing and learning at different paces, and even if we are all growing and learning together, comparing your growth to someone else does nothing to help either of you. Also, remember to be kind to yourself."

REETI’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

MACMURRAY COLLEGE

PHILOSOPHY, POLITICAL SCIENCE, ECONOMICS

ZANAYA’S ADVICE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

"Take everything you do seriously! I was always set on the idea of being a pre-medicine major before and after I graduated high school. It’s now my Sophomore year and I’m majoring in Philosophy, Political Science, and Economics with a triple minor in Biology, Psychology, and Business. I blew off majority of my AP exams because I thought they weren’t going to pertain to my major, but now I’m really wishing I took my exams a little more serious."
