Student to Share her Academic Journey in Majors and Beyond
Sarah Hanson, a junior at Penn State York, will share her experiences as a Penn State student during a presentation called Majors and Beyond. The program, set for noon on Wednesday, Oct.12 in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center, is free and open to the public.
Hanson, 19, of York, Pa., began her college education as a dual enrollment student; she took college courses while in high school, and then graduated to attend Penn State as a Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) student. She was undecided about her major and explored courses through DUS until she settled on geography. DUS allows students to explore the University's academic offerings before deciding on a field of study and is for students in transition from one college or major to another. DUS encourages students to meet their academic potentials through well-informed educational planning, as well as through meaningful experiences such as internships, education abroad, public scholarship, research, and student organizations.
Hanson will share her journey to finding a major and talk about her involvement in an education abroad program in South Africa, Parks and People, that she participated in last spring. She will share slides and answer questions about her experience.
