What made you decide to choose your specific major?

I decided on choosing UX design because I liked how you get to work with people and design products,  ideas or websites to help make the experience. I also like how you can apply it to many different careers.

What are a couple of your favorite things about your program of study?

So far a couple of my favorite things are group projects and and learning more about UX design in general and how I can apply it.p

What has been one of your favorite class projects?

My favorite class projects right now is my experience studio project where my group is working with P&G. It’s one of my favorite because it’s very hands on and I love gaining experience and knowledge by working directly with a company.

What other activities are you involved in on campus?

Other activities I am involved with is I am in sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi.

What do you know about your program of study now that you wish someone had told you when you were choosing a major?

UX design is more hands on then you think, you work in groups/teams on projects and actually get to apply what you learn.
