#ReasonsToSwitch Campaign Joel Eaton

College can be a time of exploration, learning, and growing...

...of trying new things, meeting new people, and making your own choices.

For some, the decision of what to major in is a simple one.

For others, the decision can seem more complicated—and sometimes even downright daunting!

Should I major in something that fulfills me, or should I major in something with job security and good pay?

What if I hate my job one day? What if I pick the wrong major?

You enjoy being creative, but you also want to make money when you graduate.

What if you could have BOTH???
