Can you help me choose my college major?
I'm quiet and like to keep to myself. I do have a customer service/sales/graphic artist job that I enjoy but stresses me out. I am creative and love to paint, take pictures, and create any craft projects. I have an AAS in Computer Technology, but I'm tired of staring at the computer all day, and I don't want to do that for the rest of my life. I'd love to pursue an Art or Music degree, but I am afraid it won't provide for my family in the future. Any ideas?

Take an art or music class to fulfill one of your general education requirements. If you absolutely love one of them, it might be a good fit for a major. Talk to you academic advisor about career opportunities that relate to that major. You may be surprised to find how many options are available to you.

Advertising!!! It's the major I'm in. It's probably the most fun you'll ever have learning. Being creative and good with graphic design will help you out a lot. The money's great too.
