UTM students have decided to "Prepare to Declare," the official motto of the newly founded Undeclared Club. Principal Undeclared adviser Rhonda T. Jones, research associate of the Student Success Center, designed the club this fall to assist undeclared UTM students in making a decision.
The club will sponsor various speakers and the upcoming Major Fair in April. The club has already met once this year on October 16 where they elected club officers. Jones admits that the club is "mostly freshmen, but is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors."
The officers include all freshman students: President Holly McMillian, Vice President Jon Tyler Hamil, Treasurer Beth Pagel, Secretary Kristin Lax, and Assistant Secretary Alan Greve.
Jones hopes that the club will "connect the kids with colleges and departmental heads in order to help them choose a major."
The program seems to be working and a few of the members have already chosen a major, including Pagel. Even though she is not officially an undeclared student anymore, Pagel is still active in the club.
Jones encourages anyone with interests in a large variety of majors or who is still unsure of what major they want to join the club.
Their next meeting will be on November 6 at 3:00 p.m. in UC 231.
