Firmlizing cl major For some students receiving the final degree plan was uite an accomplishment. Many students knew all along hat they wanted to major in so the degree plan was merely i formality. But, to some, the degree plan represented hours, nonths or maybe even years of deliberation. Most students selected a major some time during their iophornore year. Ken Rasco, registrar, said 50 to 75 percent if the sophomore class reported a major this year, The deci- iion was final in some cases, but in others it was merely the Jeginning of many "major" changes. The degree plan, to many freshmen and sophomores, was is clear as mud. Elizabeth Fry, sophomore, said she had no dea that she needed a degree plan. And, when she received ier degree plan, she could not decipher what she had taken Jr needed to take, The degree plan lingo often needed :ranslation from personnel in the registrars office. Students often had hopes of fulfiling childhood dreams when selecting a majorg but to their dismay, some sophomores found their dreams unreachable at ACU. Bruce Heyen, sophomore, said he wanted to be a firemen in his younger days, but no classes in the catalog were listed for Fire Fighting 1101. Some women aspired to become models, out no major existed to achieve that goal either. So . , . most students were back to the drawing board for new ideas. Finally they settled on something, whether it be eology, Spanish or law enforcement. If no major of interest as found, business administration or elementary education ecame popular choices. Of course, some students often chose not to follow the crowd and dived into Greek or animal science. For some students other factors played a role in selecting a major. Bonnie Arvin, junior, said she just followed the roup to the communication department during freshman rientarion. When asked why she chose that group, she said, "The guy who led the group was good looking." Luckily she did like the field and didn't change her major, When the Hella Book finally arrived each semester, sophomores anxiously searched to see that their newly- selected major was correctly reported, along with their phone number. If they thought deciphering the degree plan was tough, they were definitely in for a treat when they tried to figure out what these codes represented. For example, students majoring in HE could be human evolution majors, rather than home economics majors. To students interested in mass communication, ENG might have represented a specailized major in electronic news gathering, rather than English.

Other students, many seniors, just couldn't Q get enough of the registrar's office and kept going back semester after semester. Sophomores found their niche in the ACU society when they decided on a major. The search for a major may have represented much anguish, but students discovered the trou- ble was worth it when the hours began to be behind them, - rather than ahead. - Tammy Dalylaf I T' ' r, Williams, Dana Williams, Donna Williams, Leah Williams, Leslie Williams, Pamela Williamson, Scott Wilson, Karen Wilson, Suzanne Wimberley, Eddie Witcher, Bert Woodall, Bruce Woolly,jill Worsham, Amy Wright, Carol Yandell, Tim Yarbrough, David Yates, Durinda Yaws, Samuel Young, Kelly Young, Wilson Yowell, Virginia Sophomores 91
