STORIES LEADING THE WAY
“Hi, I’m Tai. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in high school. So, after I picked Roberts, I joined the Academic Exploration Program. I met other students who also didn’t know what they wanted to do. It was comforting to know I wasn’t alone!
We got a student mentor as well as an advising professor. These people helped us navigate some self-discovery projects. It helped us realize what we’re good at, what works, and what we don’t want to do.
Personally, I figured out I wasn’t a science guy at all. I got to shadow some Business and Communication courses – and boom, Business was the major for me. Now, after graduating, I work as the director of operations for a local company, and I love it.”
