Event has passed.

Programs: ACCESS CE Evening Credit CE Online Credit

What does it take to get ahead even while you’re changing your major? You’re about to find out.

In this 20-min Own Your Journey conversation, we’ll chat with Lucie Farnham, an out-of-state junior who made a big shift after her first year of undergrad. Initially enrolled in the business school, Lucie decided after her first year to pursue a career in elementary education and social work. She didn’t want to fall behind schedule and miss the spring student teaching semester, so Lucie worked with her advisor to create a class schedule that enables her to complete her requirements online and on time. 

Post your questions for Lucie as she talks about her decision to change majors and how she’s made it all happen on schedule.
