Meet Me

Hey! I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Alicia Racculia and I am a freshman in DUS, although I definitely want to major in something in The Smeal College of Business. I was here for summer session and am so excited to finally be on campus with all of the rest of the students this fall! I am from Pittsburgh, but Penn State has always been my favorite school so I knew I had to come here. Like most people enrolled in this class, science is not my thing. I was okay with biology, but my hatred for the subject set in when I was forced to take chemistry. I found it to be boring and did not understand when I would ever need to know any of the topics I was learning. Ironically, my step sister graduated with a degree in Biology from Penn State this past spring, but I definitely will not be following in her scientist footsteps.

So, when I was registering for my courses for this fall semester my advisor told me I would need to enroll in a natural science. This was disappointing for me, because I was hoping to be able to avoid this subject. When I came across this science course I felt that it would be broad enough to still keep my interest and now after looking at the syllabus I think I made the right decision. I know that I still will never be a scientist but at least this will fulfill my requirements.

I can relate to what you said about your step sister being in the exact opposite field as you. My brother and sister are engineers and big math/science geeks while I love writing and english.

I'm in the same boat as you! I'm also in DUS and looking to be in the Smeal College of Business and don't like science either.

Along with everyone else that commented on your post already, I too hate science and am hoping to become enrolled in the Smeal College of Business. Because we're not sure what we exactly want to major in, this could possibly help. List of Smeal Majors

i forgot to add a live link so here it is!!
I want to be a finance major!

I totally understand about having the older sibling who is good at science! I have an older brother (a senior here at PSU right now) who has always been the science/math one in our family, while I am the exact opposite! He is majoring in Telecommunication, and I'm majoring in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management!
