Psychology

Super Senior Year

I am currently in the second semester of my “super” senior year at St. Cloud State University. I feel like I am finally in the right place and know exactly what I want to do up until graduation. It only changed my major 4 times before finally landing on Mass Communications-Public Relations. I realized after taking the introduction classes that it was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing. I also was always interested in Psychology since it was my major coming into college. I decided that instead of it being a major, I would minor in it. There is really no rush into figuring out what you want to major in so definitely take your time until you find something perfect!

I am also currently working at H.R. Pesty’s, a local bar in the area and work for C&L distributing as a Budweiser Ambassador. I have learned a variety of skills working at both these jobs that I will be able to apply to any future job that I may have. I love working at both of these jobs because I get to talk to people everyday. I am an extremely social person so it kind of is the perfect place for me to be right now. It is nice to have a job that I already work with promotions and social media campaigns because in the future, I could see myself working for any company doing those types of things.

Now, I’m just waiting for the rest of my life to begin!

Priorities

Halfway through my sophomore year I was still deciding on my major. I came to SCSU anticipating psychology, then thinking business, then maybe education. Honestly every major offered here probably crossed my mind at some point. I was still stuck on partying with friends on the weekends and wasn’t too worried about what I was going to do with the rest of my life.

It seemed unrealistic to me to figure out what I wanted to do at the age of 19. I put it off until recently when I realized I needed to finally figure it out. I decided on Mass Communications- Public Relations with a minor in Psychology. I enjoyed the basic core classes and liked how interactive a lot of them were. Designing, creating and editing media were something new to be, but something I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed.

It is important for me to find a healthy balance between school, work and my social life. Coming closer and closer to the end, I think I am getting more motivated to finish with a bang and make an effort to really try the best I can, because I know that I have the ability to do so.
