I chose my major because: I love science, the act of discovery in the world brings about a certain feeling that is unmatched. I also really enjoy literature and reading, but how many people who major in English make money?

Advice to incoming freshmen: Join the Alchemists club, hit up the gym, don't be afraid to try new things, don't go into too much student debt.
