Deciding Students Profiles

Leah Pritchard '26 walked into her first weeks and months of college more relaxed in knowing that she could sharpen her academic and career focus without having to change her major. Declaring herself 鈥渄eciding鈥 gave her a bit of breathing room, and plenty of resources. "The (deciding student) program helped me find interests, but it also helped me find things I am not interested in as well," she says. "At first, this was a little defeating, but it allowed me to open new doors again and explore even further. It's comforting knowing I wouldn't have to change my major, just my focus." Pritchard chose education with a business marketing focus 鈥 positioning herself for careers in both traditional schooling, online education, as well as corporate training.

At first, Charlie Mitchell 鈥26 cringed at the thought of someone innocently asking: 鈥渟o, what鈥檚 your major?鈥 His trepidation has turned to excitement though thanks to the emphasis placed on being "okay" to begin your college journey as an undecided student by those who designed John Carroll鈥檚 College Compass course. Mitchell praises the program design for creating a culture of acceptance and encouragement that inspires students to avoid closing doors and seeking their path.

Josephine Lawler 鈥26 discovered early in her College Compass course (the foundation of John Carroll鈥檚 deciding student experience) that sifting through hundreds of major, minor, and concentration options is akin to ordering from an extensive restaurant menu. Step one 鈥 deciding what not to order 鈥 enables future choices. Lawler credits input from guest speakers, other deciding students and program advisors for helping her get clear on what majors were 鈥渢otally not me鈥 and which majors spoke to her passions and skills.

Caoilin Schaeffer remembers picking up a Sociology and Criminology designated lanyard on acceptance day at 葫芦影业 so that she would have something to say when people asked her what she was studying. However, after seeing 鈥渦ndecided鈥 as one of the major options to choose from at 葫芦影业, Caoilin felt a weight off her shoulders. The College Compass course has given Caoilin insights into different majors, and their specific course sequence, which gave her path of deciding more structure, and less uncertainty.
