10 Things Undeclared Students Understand

Look, it’s a lot of pressure trying to figure out what you want to do with your life when you only just finished high school. Most of us can’t even decide on an outfit to wear! Big decisions take time, so if you’re on of those students that opted to enter college undeclared, this one’s for you.

1. You’re always nervous what kind of reaction you’ll get when you tell people.

Oh no…Confronted with the dreaded “What’s your major?” question once again.

 

2. But most of the time, people end up praising your decision.

Secretly, many people wish they spent more time thinking about their path.

 

3. Still, there are those occasional judgmental reactions.

What they see as unprepared, you see as careful thinking.

 

4. You know that you’re still knocking important credits out of the way.

You’ll be done with those Gen Ed’s before anyone else. That’s a win!

 

5. But the pressure of figuring out your future is too real.

You do know the decision has to be made soon.

 

6. Finding other undecided students is a definite bonding moment.

Because it’s nice having support when it comes to big decisions.

 

7. You may snag a variety of electives in attempts to find your passion.

You’re really hoping for one of those “Aha!” moments.

 

8. Only to find out you’re not cut out for something you thought you’d be.

Hey, at least you’re learning about yourself!

 

 

9. But eventually, something does click.

English and literature? Yes, please. Math and chemistry? Not so much.

 

 

10. And at the end of the day, you know you made the right decision. 

Because 18-year-old you definitely didn’t know yourself as well as you do now.
