Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
I spent the first 3 years as an animal science major, and i have to say those first 2 years were the hardest years i've ever been through (academic wise). HOWEVER, my junior year i transferred to psychology and it was worlds better. The psych department is fantastic, the professors are all really friendly and relaxed, its the area courses that really get you. i was also a disability student and the office for students with disabilities are extremely helpful!

I will agree with the negative commenters that the majority of people here are Greek life obsessed close minded white people, so minority students BEWARE; you will encounter lots of insensitivity and some not so blatant forms of racism. But i i will say that there are students not like that, i found an amazing group of friends who are driven, open-minded, sincere and creative, those pople do exists on campus.

overall i would say, do your research. i did not know this school was out in the middle of nowhere in the mountains, but it is an extremely beautiful campus with lots of outdoor activities when it is warm. I am by no means a country girl at all, and it was an adjustment, after my first year i fell in love with being here and it really does grow on you.
