First Year Experience Shifts Undergrad’s Goals

Colette Highsmith | Undergraduate | Psychology 

A First Year Experience Summer Bridge course at IUPUI convinced Colette Highsmith that she wanted to be a psychology major.

“In my Summer Bridge course I explored psychology and liked the fact that the field is always growing and changing,” says Colette. “People are always questioning things. You can explore new ideas, new methods of solving problems and expand on existing ideas. I think that’s really fascinating.”

Colette is furthering her psychology education with a minor in American Sign Language. As a campus ambassador for IUPUI, it’s normal to find her in the surrounding Indy community applying her studies to the world around her.
