Find your calling at Major Madness


Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to study in college because of its vast array of possibilities that can seem overwhelming and daunting. That’s why Laramie County Community College will host Major Madness on Wednesday, Sept. 26, in the Student Lounge from 11 a.m.—1 p.m.

Ginny Ruckman, academic adviser, said this event is designed to help students who are undecided majors, are considering changing their major, are considering a second major or are looking “to complement their academic plans with a certificate.”

Ruckman said, “The purpose of Major Madness is to provide a centralized occasion for students to investigate various curricular and career options available here in one place at one time.” Ruckman added this event is a chance for students to explore the possibilities at LCCC and “a chance for faculty to answer questions and communicate information about the various majors in their divisions.”

The majors/programs that will participate in this event are agriculture, physical education/exercise science, psychology, computers, surgical technology, engineering technology, English, education/early childhood education, human services and mass media/multimedia.

Door prizes will be awarded at the event.

Renfro said that sometime in October, when the spring class schedule is released, LCCC advising and career services and the Bridge Team will sponsor a messaging campaign around campus to remind students to meet with their advisers as soon as possible.

“At that point, if a student indicates he/she is undecided, we will encourage appointments with advisers who have career exploration training,” Renfro explained.

Renfro added a variety of free career exploration options are available in the Career Center, “ranging from quick things that can be done from home, to one-on-one coaching and counseling complete with inventories that can help narrow interests down.”
