I am a graduate student in sociology working on a master's thesis. My particular love of sociology is in studying race and community.

I am a triple majoring right now- medical assistant, surgical technologist and medical reimbursement technologist, then thinking of going for nursing when i am done with that. I love to care for people, i am easy going, and a strong lead. I am very caring and love to care for children, adults alike. I have taken care of my mom when she had several surgeries- including both knees replaced-including me giving shots, icing, bandaging, she also had baratric surgery, where i also took care of her. I am so proud of her, she use to be 3x-4x and was down to size 10/12 however has gained some back, so i am hoping she will join me back on this journey. I also have been very sick myself, with years of unknown diagnosis, and i have been there, and i feel i could comfort the patients. My goal as a medical professional is to work at Riley hospital for children, IU medical center for adults/children or Saint judes. Because i have been undercare of a very high ranking hospital-iu medical center.

I'm a Psych major. I fell in love with the subject in high school and always thought I'd become a psychologist. While I'm a bit iffy about spending another four years in grad school, it seems like that might be the plan. I also want to work in a psychiatric high school. I find the idea of it fascinating.

Im studying for my bsn in nursing, because I love being a nurse and it has so many different arenas that you could work in. Job security is great as well, but once you are in it you most definitely have to love what you are do in order to deal with the bs dished out on a daily.

I'm majoring in sociology right now, with one last year to go. I plan on probably getting my masters in social work. College has really changed the way I look at the world and I would really love to have a career in which I am giving back to the community. I would really love to work with the elderly in some way.

I am in the Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art Education program, which equates to two degrees, one in Jewelry Design and the other certifies me to teach K-12 Art Education. My goal is to create my own line of jewelry, plus teach art to urban high schoolers.

This group has such interesting majors!

I'm studying Music. Music is my life basically! I started singing in a Cathedral when I was 9, and since then music has taken over my life! I play Piano, Organ, Tenor Sax and Clarinet. Music is all I'm good at, so it made sense to do it at University!

I haven't declared yet, but I'm thinking I'll most likely major in business of some sort, most likely business management. Since I was about 16 I've had this dream of owning my own new and used record store with a little cafe in it. Lots of comfy chairs and couches, tasty drinks and muffins (healthy too, of course), listening stations, and just a chill atmosphere. Live music sometimes? It's all I've ever wanted, but I worry about my business surviving in the digital age, especially with the upsurge in illegal music downloading.

I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens!

I'm majoring in Political Science because my favorite thing to do is debate politics with people, ESPECIALLY when they have very different view points than my own because it helps me to identify counter-arguments to my own points and think of ways to strengthen my arguments.
After that, I want to go to law school and do immigration law, I want to help people realize their dreams of becoming US citizens.
And of course, I want to "fight the power" lol

I'm pursuing a dual degree in Psychology and Life Sciences (anatomy/biology), that will hopefully be done in about 2 and a half more years (I'll be a junior this summer). With that, eventually I plan on going to grad school and opening up my own sex therapy clinic, but right now graduating with two degrees and running away for a few years to work in a snobby coffeeshop sure sounds good!

I'm studying Nutrition and Economics. I've always been interested in health (but was never smart enough to be a doctor!) so nutrition was a natural path. Since being diagnosed with PCOS as well its become so much more interesting.

However I've always been a math wizz and enjoyed economics through high school. Now I'm doing that at uni (along with the odd stats paper) I'm hoping to move into the public health field when I graduate and get into analysis - whether it be economic or stats based, or maybe both!

You can call me Simone ;-)
I'm a full-time student (BSc Nutrition, BCom Economics) and also work part-time.

Currently on Metformin.
Love my green tea!

Hi Cutzerbear!
It's great that you want to be a teacher... I know I wouldn't be any good at it, and actually I don't think I would enjoy it, but I've always enjoyed a lot when I've had good teachers, I think it's a beautiful job if you're good at it... and it's great for the students to have a dedicated teacher!

I am majoring in Math Education. I love math (when it includes numbers) and I am also a people person. I am so excited to start teaching in a couple of years so that I can watch my students develop and then go onto college. I also value family a lot and teaching is a great career if you want to have a family.

I'm majoring in psychology. I'm not sure what line of work I'll end up in but I'm really interested in education, so ideally I'll find some way to use research in psychology for educational reform. I've toyed with the idea of being a school teacher, but I'm not sure I could hack it.

Also, all the classes in psych sound awesome! I got other requirements out of the way my first year so now in my second year I'm taking two psych courses and they have yet to disappoint.

Hi everyone! I'm studying to be an elementary teacher. I love kids and think that teachers make huge impacts on kids and the future, whether they realize it or not. Also I'm studying Spanish. I've always wanted to be able to speak a foreign language and it will help me obtain a good teaching job. It will also be good for everyday life and possibly missions.

Don't put off today what you can do tomorrow!

Hi all!

I am a first year law student. I was a history major as an undergrad and then I worked for 4.5 years as a lobbyist for a nonprofit organization. While working I got a masters in nonprofit management. I finally came to the realizatin to get the kind of job I wanted and make the different I hoped to make I needed a law degree.

So I am now 26 and on the path to degree number three....I have to not think about my student loans.

I'm pretty sure we're the coolest group of students ever. What seriously amazingly cool majors and aspirations!

I'm majoring in Linguistics, which is a bit of a pain, but I enjoy it overall. Linguistics doesn't lend itself to anything other than academia, and I'm not sure I want to do research for the rest of my life. Actually, I want to become an American Sign Language interpreter and learn some African sign languages...maybe go into Deaf Ed or something like that.

I'm pretty conflicted about grad school at this point in time. My boyfriend is going to go to law school, which I admire. But I'm not sure if I want to keep going to school, or what I want to go for. Is anyone else a little bit ambivalent about continuing on?

This is what a scale is: a weighing machine. This is what a scale measures: level, size, balance, range,
degree, extent, amount, magnitude, and dimension. Notice this list does not include happiness, self-esteem,
worthiness, lovability, deservingness, goodness or badness, beauty, body
image, fatness, distress, or sanity.

I am not afraid to make mistakes.

I'm majoring in Anthropology, focused in Archaeology, because ancient cultures and lifeways fascinate me. I'm also highly interested in oral histories (folk tales, knowledge passed down) and how they assist Archaeologists in learning about the past (and also how/why archaeologists have largely ignored oral history up to now!).
I don't actually plan to become an archeologist, as I'm sick of school (and heavily in debt- student loans, bah!) and I don't want to continue. I could work in a lab but I really enjoy my current job, doing tech support at my college- I'd really like to continue doing that sort of thing or administrative assistant work.
My dream job, however, is crafting. I love making things- anything, really, but especially crochet and stuffed toys- and if I could make that into a career I'd be so happy. My boyfriend is going back to school in '08 for robotics, so he should be making more money in a few years and I might be able to get a craft business off of the ground.

I am majoring in psychology. The last 8 years or so of my life have been somewhat trying and I found a lot of help in a psychologist...I want to be there for other teenager aged people...to show that them life can get better and that you can over come the hardships in yourlife.
I either want to work with teens who are dealing with crisis/tragedy or with females dealing with eating disorders...including overeating.
I just have this need to help people...!

I'm majoring in Translation and Interpreting because I love languages and movies, and I really like the idea of translating a script so it can be dubbed into Spanish (so far I've translated several National Geographic documentaries, we'll see if the movies or series come)and because I think interpreting is fascinating. The moment I put the earphones on and the conference begins... it's like my whole body, energy, mind, soul is focused on being the missing link between the person giving the speech and the audience. And I love it.

At a different school I'm majoring in Media Studies, I guess as some kind of reassuring the movies/tv thing of translation.

I know it's crazy this whole double thing, but I've decided I'm not rushing. I've spent a year abroad, I have 5 hours/day commute and I'm studying exactly twice as any of my friends... so I don't need to feel bad if I don't graduate in 5 years, right? I'm hoping for 6 for translation&interpreting (finishing next year) and one more to finish media.

Also, I've started working as a free lance translator. it gives me the chance to choose my hours and all, but I'm not sure if I have time to sleep!
