When I started at UNL, I wanted a major that supported my career goal of becoming a motivational speaker and emcee. However, there aren’t any majors that are an exact match. So I knew I would have to explore different majors to find the right fit.  Initially, that made me apprehensive. 

I met with my advisor, and started to explore all the classes that UNL offered.  There were always fun ones to take, and some that I didn’t enjoy so much, but we did end up trying out at least 3 different majors throughout the exploratory process. My advisor and I were able to look over the different classes and lay out plans for my academic path.

I currently have a major in Broadcasting, with minors in Communication Studies and Leadership and Communication.  My journey has been a blast; it just took a while to figure out what I really wanted out of my education.

My advice to prospective students is “don’t worry”. As long as we trust and work with our advisers, and trust ourselves with what we are passionate about, the rest will take care of itself.
