“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Department Teas are held within academic departments to assist students in selecting their major.  The Office of Academic Deans compiles a list every spring and makes it available to Sophomores in time to declare a major.  This list will become available in the near future.
