Major: Music Education (This Major's Salary over time)
I am finishing my GMU first semester experience in a week. This was truly the best 18 weeks of my life. It might be because I am not from the largest county or the best place in the world but GMU manages to balance everything I want. Yea, Gen Eds are boring and some of my music classes are really challenging and some of the teachers make you feel like a piece of crap, but it all is like the real world. Yes things will be easy, some hard, and people are going to talk down to you. Yes it does rain alot here, but it's been a rainy year. Sometimes this college isn't right for people, but for me it definitely was. The cops here are really strict in the Park (freshman housing) and I found that out first hand getting a judicial. But the whole system was a joke after that…they threaten bad things but then all you have to do is attend a course or make a bulliten board. Things here in the social aspect are pretty awesome. You can go clubbing, partying, out to the movies, and shopping. There is so much to do on the weekends. And yes, alot of people don't like the fact that on the weekends there is like nobody here…but i freaken love that. You don't have to wait in lines…you can go and study somewhere without a million people being there too. Honestly I love it! That's all I can think of but it really has been an amazing experience.
questionDo you feel that as a music major, you're getting a solid foundation? I want to major in music performance but I know nothing about the quality of GMU's music program. Elaborate?
