Insignificance

Today, I wondered what makes college different than high school regarding the addition of a major. At what point in our college career do we truly feel our major is affecting us? All of my friends have been switching majors like they’re articles of clothing, and it makes a major classification before sophomore year seem so insignificant. You are able to change your major 20 times and still graduate in four years, so perhaps the idea of a major only becomes significant once college ends and you have to decide where to go next. I tell people I’m a neuroscience and french major, and they’re always so impressed, but what am I really doing except for taking the core classes that most other students are taking as well? Once I am in veterinary school, you can be impressed, but for now, my major is no more than an indicator of what I hope to do one day, not what I’m doing now.
