Why I chose my major

I came into college as an Early Childhood Education major, but I knew it was not the right fit for me. I realized I wanted a major that was flexible and allowed for individualized pathways to get to your desired career. When I heard about Human Development and Family Science, I knew this was the right major for me. I chose this major because it gives an all-encompassing education that also promotes originality.

What I like most about FACS

FACS is a family. The professors and staff members within the college are always willing to help and support each student. The college promotes relationships that reach beyond the classroom and I appreciate the life-long encouragement we receive.

Post-graduation plans

I will be attending College of Charleston for my Master of Science in Child Life Degree.
