90 + Majors: How Do I Decide?

The good thing is, you don’t have to immediately. We want you to explore until you learn what you love. Top employers remind Saint Vincent alumni that “it takes more than a major” to thrive. Corporate recruiters and grad school admission teams look for personality, maturity and a certain mindset. Someone who can work well with others and adapt. Someone who can ask a timely question and help solve problems in an uncertain world. Someone unafraid to innovate.
