Advice for Exploratory Students

What’s one piece of advice you would give to an incoming Exploratory student?

My piece of advice is to be patient when it comes to declaring a major. The unknown can be scary, but everything will work out.  It is much worse to rush into something that you are not sure of, than to be patient and wait until you are completely sure.


What tips would you give students about getting involved on campus?

Getting involved on campus can be a little overwhelming. However, do not be afraid to put yourself out there and find organizations that best fit you.

There are a variety of ways to access knowledge about organizations. One of the easiest ways to find information about an organization is to search that organization on the WKU website. You may also keep an eye out for emails or flyers around campus.


What campus resources helped you find a major?

My adviser was the most helpful resource when it came to finding my major.  She was able to answer my questions about many different majors. Do not be afraid to talk to your adviser, they are there to help you find what is best for you!  I also took classes within majors that also fulfilled colonnade requirements. This helped me get a taste of some majors, without taking course that may not benefit me later.
