Personally, I came to New York University undeclared—I was thinking of majoring in photography, but I didn’t think it was a viable career option. But then when I actually got to the university, I realized that doing what I was passionate about would be the best choice for a major and a career. Just as important as the classes you take—if not more—are the people you meet. Making connections and forming networks of people who will help you succeed is New York University’s biggest asset. If you aren’t sure exactly what you want to do yet, just come to the city and take everything in your first year; you are bound to discover something you are passionate about!
