For confused students, the Office of Academic Advisement will hold a 'Major Decisions Workshop' designed to help students decide on a major.

Academic adviser Joyce Miller said the seminar will include information on the process of choosing a major and a question and answer session about academic programs available at the University. The free seminar is open to students who have not declared a major or wish to change their majors.

Miller said it will consists of two one-and-one-half hour sessions. Students will be able to choose between two sections, both of which meet from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Section A will meet on Sept. 24 and Oct. 1, while section B will meet on Sept. 25 and Oct. 2.

To participate, students need to sign up in the academic advisement office in 211 Pat Neff Hall. Miller said she encourages students to register as soon as possible since space is limited to 50 participants.

Students in the seminar will receive an information packet and a career interest test. They need to complete the test prior to the start of the seminar.

The test will give students suggestions for possible career fields according to the students' skills and interests. Miller said the test will give a student helpful information on possible jobs and career fields.

Amanda Rivers, a Grapevine sophomore, attended the seminar last year and said it helped her decide on a major.

Rivers said, 'I think the workshop can help students learn what their options are.'
