LAW - 8/5/2014
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016
"I'm currently a junior here at NAU. I bounced around between two majors and I honestly still am unsure what I'll be graduating with. Let me talk about two of the majors and they types of classes. I took 3 semesters worth of biology classes for my nursing major. I can tell you that I want to be a nurse more than anything in the world. In fact, the only reason I started another major was because here at NAU getting into the nursing program is near impossible in the first semester you apply. The biology classes I took were extremely hard. When you're taking 17 credits worth of classes and 9 of them are science, you have no time to breathe. I tried extremely hard and failed miserably in trying to get As in all my classes. It's not easy. I found myself down in the dumps for months frustrated with the fact that I probably won't get into the program any time soon. That's why I switched to Social Work. SW is a much easier major and the program doesn't have a limited amount of applicants it takes. I applied the first chance I got, before I had even finished taking my first SW class and got in. The over all major is about helping people of all walks of life no mater age, sex, gender, orientation, nationality, etc. I haven't found a class that was so hard that I found myself unable to comprehend the ideas. Right now my plan is to graduate with a degree in Social Work and go back to school in the future, probably out of state, for nursing. If you are lucky enough to make it into the nursing program here, I am sure it is fantastic. Good luck with everything when it comes to your college future!"
