Economics

An organization connected to my program has provided a network of people who may be future co-workers or bosses and who have helped me develop direction and purpose in my senior year of college and will support my ventures, whatever they turn out to be.  I have more purpose in my major because I now know how the subject material can apply and relate to my future plans.
