Academic Goals

Why are you here? That is certainly not an original question. The answer, though unique to each student, is centered on your academic pursuits. You need the best guides possible to help you make informed decisions. The first step is to make sure you are in the right major; not just correct on BearWeb, but will it take you in the direction that will culminate your personal and career aspirations? Next, you want to be sure to use accurate tools - catalog, degree audit, transcript. Finally, it is normal to have many questions; do not hesitate to ask for guidance. Have a successful journey!
