"When I first came to RIT, I was in the Industrial Design program. If it was not for a random placement in an Intro to Sociology class my first term, I might still be in that major. That course really made me think about, write about, read about, talk about, and care about issues affecting society today in at a level I had not done so before. By the end of my first year, I thought that maybe I could and should do something to try to resolve at least some of these issues. That is why I switched to the College of Liberal Arts and to the Public Policy department. In the future, I hope to help enact and adjust policies in a way that helps to resolve some of the issues I learned about in my sociology, philosophy, political science, environmental studies, and departmental courses. This major really allows me to explore all the areas I care about and to take classes in a variety of departments while still specializing in my field. And it even allowed me to fit in a year of art school along the way."
