I've got 2 pieces of advice for you. First off, give your college a year, unless you're really miserable. And second, take different classes until you find what you like.
The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

I graduated in '05 from High School and I had NO clue on what I wanted to do with my career/future so I took the year off of college to get situated and find out what I wanted to do. Plus the year off really helped me. I got to REALLY look into many different jobs and such that I could see myself doing and enjoying in the future.
Anywho, I'm not saying to take a year off..that's not for everyone..but just take some general classes right now *Math, English, Bio..etc..* and keep looking into what you want to do. What do you see yourself doing that you can also enjoy. And go from there...

Nah, but to reiterate what was said earlier, take your basics in a variety of fields, cos you never know which one will tickle your intellectual funnay bonez.

So here I am in my first semester of college and now I'm questioning what I want to major in and if this school is the right place for me. Did anyone else do this? Or have any advice? Reply's and PMs are welcome...I guess I just really don't know what to do. Thanks
This is normal, definitely don't feel like you are alone in this though. It's hard to figure out what you want to do sometimes. The key is to not let it get you down mentally, and to try to take an interest and learn as much as you can in everything you take.
I received my Bachelor's in Business Administration a few years ago with two majors to broaden my knowledge. While I enjoy my job and my good days far outweight my bad ones at work, I still question if this is the kind of work I want to do 10 years from now or whether I should eventually go back to school to get another undergraduate or a graduate degree.
Don't get frustrated, this happens to plenty of people. Feel free to drop me a line more about this, I'd love to help you out some more if you want.

No need to worry, you have a lot of time to figure it out. Like the others said, just take your basic classes that everyone needs and take electives that you find interesting. You'll eventually find the right thing that suits you.

High School barely prepares students for the college life or what to expect in the "real world". So I don't find it unusual at all to change your major. After all, in HIgh school your field of choice is presented to you in the form of a aptitude(sp?) which places you into a field which matches best with your answers.... Hardly ever do those work out... College is the first chance you really have at seriously exploring something of interest to you, somthing you are going to be possibliy be spending 50 years doing... Not at all an easy decision, nor should it have to decided on right away first semester.
I would suggest starting out taking your general Ed classes and maybe a touch of some of the classes in your desired field. That way if you decide down the road you really don't like this major, you won't of gone too far off track.

Figure out what you want, what will make you happy and do it! I tried to find something I was good at, that would pay semi-decently and that I could find a job in but it still didn't make me happy. Majoring in the one thing that I've had a passion for ever since I was a little kid was the best decision I could've made.

I'm also a first semester freshman at college right now. I've questioned whether this is the right place - nobody from my high school is here, so it was hard starting out with literally zero friends. Give your college a chance. If you don't make many friends, and don't like people in general there, then maybe its time to transfer.
Best of luck to ya.
