The most important factor in helping students discover their purpose is experience. Without many experiences students aimlessly attempt to make themselves fit without passion. Providing students with a wide range of experiences, from social to academic, provides the opportunity for students to determine their passions which in turn leads to students discovering their purpose.

I took two full semesters before declaring, and I am still on track to graduate in four years with a double major. It is totally manageable and possible! It helps that Cal Lutheran has so many class options and is not overly impacted like some programs at other schools.
