Gabriella Diaz, '21, always knew she wanted to major in psychology, and once she got far along into this major she felt something was missing. A housemate suggested she take a public health course and she ended up declaring that minor the same semester.

Gabriella was able to make the connections between her courses, but wanted a way to encapsulate all her studies.
