    Undergraduate Psychology Major

    I'm a freshman at college and I'm majoring in psychology. I plan on taking classes that are more on the counseling psychology side instead of addiction studies and I'm going to go for my Master's degree. Since there aren't very many big schools in my state, I'm hoping to go to...

    Psychology means the world to me,

    especially abnormal psychology. I really want to help people someday, but I am getting so discouraged lately. I would love to meet others who are psych majors; maybe we can help each other out? :)
