Ray Hernandez

Hometown:
Provo, UT

My Story:
I always knew that I loved people, but I didn't know how I could address that in a major.

Thinking that I wanted to go to med school, I began the Neuroscience program and realized I wasn't passionate about the material I was learning. I discovered the International Development minor and finally felt like I was excited to attend my classes and make lasting change in the world. That led me to discover my current major: Sociology.

Sarah Jacobs

Hometown:
Provo, Utah

My Story:
When I came to BYU, I quickly realized that what I wanted in high school no longer suited what I wanted to do. I had always thought of becoming a nurse or stay heavily involved in music as it was such a huge part of my identity.

With a huge pivot in mind and a desire to explore my options and embrace all of the different facets of myself, I didn’t know which direction to go. After some major exploration, I landed on Family Life with an emphasis in Family Studies and I love it!

Parker Carlquist

Hometown:
Eden, Idaho

My Story:
I started college with interests in lots of different areas. I began considering Mechanical Engineering but quickly realized in class that I would never love or enjoy it. I felt lost and wondered, “What next?”

After considering about 10 different options, an advisor presented Public Health as a possibility. It was as if a switch flipped and I saw a possible perfect merger of my interests in science and government! Even now, the exploration continues as I consider the possibilities within Public Health.

Annie Schramel

Hometown:
Camarillo, California

My Story:
Upon coming to BYU, my interests were all over the place! I considered majoring in Nursing, Marketing, Advertising, Dietetics, and Social Science Teaching. After meeting with a BYU Academic Advisor during my Freshman year, I realized I needed to be real with myself and investigate my true passions/interests. After even more research and self-discovery, I found that Psychology was the major for me! I love learning about the human brain and human behavior. I also love the variety of possibilities and options available through Psychology.

Mackenzie Day

Hometown:
Seattle, Washington

My Story:
Arriving at BYU, I was overwhelmed with all my options! I bounced around through many majors and classes and felt as if I was the only one who had a variety of interests, with no direction.

I thought there was no way I could find a major that embodied all my interests and passions. I found myself taking classes in Biology, and almost every major in the business school, and wound up finding my home in Economics, very unexpected!

Megan Ritchie

Hometown:
Richland, Washington

My Story:
When I came to BYU I thought I knew exactly what to major in. As I took the classes for that major, I started worrying about job options. I wasn’t sure if it was right for me, which was really hard for me to come to terms with. I went to the UAC and met with an Advisor who helped me see so many options that I hadn’t considered!

Because of that I found Exercise and Wellness which I am so passionate about.

Adrian Bautista

Hometown:
Houston, Texas

My Story:
My interest in Psychology stems from a natural ability to listen which has made finding my major relatively straightforward. However, I'm still figuring out which career path I’d like to pursue specifically. Ever since choosing my major, I have found great value in chatting with individuals that have a background in Psychology – there really are so many opportunities! I look forward to learning more and clarifying my goals. From this experience, I am passionate about helping others find their way.

Auburn Williams

Hometown:
Clinton, UT

Major Journey:
My first semester at BYU, I felt directionless. There were so many majors, classes, and clubs to sift through. How was I supposed to decide?!

Being a new freshman and the first in my family to come to BYU made it harder for me to know where I could go for help. One day I walked into Exploration Point and the specialists were super friendly and introduced me to all the resources I thought I had to find on my own. Now a member on the Exploration team, I’m passionate about helping other students who want to explore their own possibilities.

Colby Schramel

Hometown:
Belgrade, MN

My Story:
The beginning of college was a whirlwind of emotions for me, and I felt very lost in the sea of options. I knew I wanted to help others and that I loved working with people. I didn’t have to look far before I came across Nursing which matched all my criteria and seemed like a good fit until I learned about other paths. Thanks to an Exploration Specialist I continued exploring other paths. As I considered what mattered most to me, we found that Psychology also met my desires, while offering a better personality, interest, and lifestyle fit.
