How has your college work helped shape your current or future career, if at all?
â€œI do want to become a psychologist. I like helping people. I feel like I can make a difference that way.â€
â€œIn my experience, a lot of students take a business major or a management major thinking theyâ€™re going to go into business. Then they get out into the world and find there are far more interesting things to do with their skills. I also think the best thing you can do for anything you want to do in life is a liberal arts education.â€

â€œI know there is some demand for art and graphic design but I donâ€™t know where to look, honestly. Itâ€™s kind of hard to get into those fields.â€

â€œDefinitely. Iâ€™m majoring in math so I can teach at some point at the high school level. Iâ€™m definitely going to apply what I learned in my major to my field.â€
â€œI didnâ€™t really use my undergraduate degree in the career I had before. I was a teacher and it was more babysitting than it was doing any math. I didnâ€™t like it. I wanted to do math in my career.â€
â€œAll of my studies definitely helped in my career. What I studied is what Iâ€™ve been doing, both in teaching political science and in working in the real world of political. However, itâ€™s possible I could still be working in international relations with a degree in another field. You donâ€™t necessarily have to have a degree in the same field.â€
