Today I feel like I should be giving a press conference. Finally, I feel like I have come to a decision. If you did not know I was an Exploratory major. This means that I am undecided, but unlike other schools Butler really tries to help you figure out what best fits for you. I have taken numerous personality, strengths, and work surveys/tests to see what best fits me. I have noticed many things from these and just the classes I am taking.
The same thing keeps popping up no matter what test. I am a communicator. I love talking to just about anyone and knowing about them. Also I noticed that my strengths are not really in the sciences or maths. I have never had a strong suit in any of these and because of that I have realized that my writing is my strongest area. Although I may not be the strongest writer I see that I have room to grow and I am excited about that!
So what am I declaring in? I have officially decided to become a Public Relations major. Here at Butler my major is not called PR but instead Strategic Communications with a focus in Public Relations. I think I have known that this would be my major for a while, but I was too afraid to declare. Last night while looking through all the different majors Butler has to offer I realized that any major I liked was in the College of Communications. It did not make sense to me why I was afraid to declare, when all along Public Relations was my main choice.
Even though a lot of people say that the personality tests, strengths tests, job tests, and job shadowing did not help them I think it helped me tremendously. I am so grateful for all the people in my life that helped support me and encourage me. From now on I can say I am a Strat Comm major instead of Exploratory, and that for me might the biggest accomplishment of my semester/year.
