Why I chose my major

I was undecided about my major until I met with staff in the Student Success and Advising Center where I was introduced to Human Development and Family Science. I chose Human Development and Family Science to be involved in a major that challenges me and pushes me to be the best version of myself personally and professionally, and I believe HDFS did that for me. My major pushes me to think critically about the systems that are at play in our daily lives, and this knowledge will be useful for the rest of my life.

What I like most about FACS

While in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, I fell in love with the notion of obtaining knowledge for real life, but that was not the only reason. The students and faculty are all so amazing and caring. They really acknowledge you and make you feel like you are a member of the FACS family. Although it is a smaller college, the impact the college has on its students’ lives is immense.

Post-graduation plans

I will be completing my Master’s in Applied Consumer Analytics in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.
