When you head off to college, many people will ask, "What are you majoring in?" A major is the main focus of your college education, and many students spend a lot of time trying to figure out which one would be best for them. However, many students want to expand their educational horizons and don't want to be limited to just one subject area. That's where a minor comes in handy.
I remember the excitement of walking the aisles of notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, and calculators every September, school-supply list in hand.

COVID-19 has impacted a lot of things—including how we restrict face-to-face interactions. Many interviews are now taking place virtually, especially in the early stages of the talent search.
