I'm a sophomore majoring in mechanical engineering, which I chose fairly arbitrarily. In high school, I enjoyed my math and science classes, so I thought engineering might be a good fit. I chose mechanical engineering specifically because I'm indecisive, and it was a broad major. But so far, I like it a lot!
