When I found out that I was accepted to IU, but that I was going to be starting as a University Division student, I was disappointed because I knew what I wanted to do and I just wanted to go straight into my major. However, after realizing the extent of majors and opportunities that IU offers, I discovered that I have so many more interests than I originally thought. Now, looking back, I’m thankful that I started in University Division and that I wasn’t limited in the interests and options I could explore. My UD advisor gave me the freedom and support to find and make my own path and this has led to great opportunities for me. I am now a major in Media Technology and Culture, which is not the original major I was so sure I would pursue. After much communication with my UD advisor about my interests and goals, I feel confident that I am on a path that I will be successful in.
