Science made me change my major

Hi everyone my name is Imaani; I am junior majoring in Broadcast Journalism. I am from Philadelphia, and I am a change of campus student (Two years at Penn State Abington ).  I was  pre-med my  freshman year but after taking  a few science and math courses I realized that it was not right fit  for me. Sophomore year I joined the school newspaper and that’s when I decided that journalism was the career that I wanted to pursue . The science classes that I took in college were awful . It consisted of these three things note taking, exams and tears . The course SC200 looked different than other science courses. I saw the word controversy and that really got my attention.  Science isn’t my favorite subject  but it is still very interesting  . I particularly like learning about animals, and my favorite animal  is the alligator. They are the closest relative to the dinosaurs that’s pretty cool in my book. Alligator

    Hey Imaani, I’m also currently in Broadcast Journalism, and believe it or not, I considered something in the medical field for a while too, but I never actually started in it because I already knew I wouldn’t be able to get through the math and science aspect. I’m glad you found something that suits your interest better.
    On the topic of alligator-like reptiles, I’d say my favorite subspecies are Kremlings.

    Hey Imaani!

    My name is Colleen and I’m right there with you with the whole science = lots of tears thing. Definitely not my strongest subject!

    I’m also from Philadelphia so since you said you like alligators, I figured I’d share this cute picture of a baby alligator riding on his mother’s head with my fellow Philadelphian. Enjoy! 🙂

    Okay, so we’re both into journalism? Dope.
    The word ‘controversy’ sparked you, too? Dope.

    I definitely wanted to take this course because it wasn’t completely related to science. My science classes in high school were so irritating. I loved Physics for some unusual reason. I don’t know if it was just the teacher that made it interesting, but I never had an academic issue with science. I just hated it.

    Animals? I like dogs. They’re smart.

    Like you, I also discovered my freshman year that science would not be the right fit for me. Before I even came to Penn State, I was accepted at Ohio University for pre-med and also decided that it wasn’t what I truly wanted to pursue. It wasn’t until my junior year that I declared my major and actually felt confident about it. Though science is not my favorite subject, I do recognize its importance and how crucial it is to everyday life. Animals have always interested me as well, even as a young child. I always enjoyed reading about spiders and other arachnids.
