Wondering what to do in college?

I overheard an interesting conversation at the barber today. A future Vol State student was getting his hair cut. The stylist asked him what he was going to take and he told her "I have absolutely no idea". This is actually pretty common. There's plenty of folks who know they want to do the college thing, but aren't sure what they want for a major or even what classes seem exciting.

There are some folks that can help you figure it out. Advisors help students with all sorts of issues, and often that's what students think...you only visit an Advisor when you have a problem. That's certainly okay, but feel free to talk to Advisors about anything. They have a bunch of ways to help you figure out possible majors and career paths. They can walk you through the basics of getting started in college, all the way to graduation. And it's not just about school. I know Advisors who have helped students deadling with Divorce and all sorts of personal problems.

Best of all they're a pretty fun bunch. I was taking pictures at the Advising Center today and they are all smiles. You can just walk into the Advising Center in the Ramer Building on the Gallatin campus from 8am until 4:30pm or you can call them at 615-230-3702.
