  • Tracy Bates
    Registration mistake helps Blugold discover her passion, future career
    Monday, Dec. 5, 2016

    Dreams of being late for a final exam, forgetting to go to class all semester or realizing after a professor starts talking that you’re in the wrong classroom are common among college students, especially during stressful times of the semester. Typically, the dreamer wakes in a panic, realizes all is well, and goes about their day. But what happens if one of those bad dreams actually turns out to be real? If you’re a Blugold like Tracy Bates you embrace the “everything happens for a reason” motto and go with it. You also discover a major, a passion and a career path that you didn’t know existed before you accidentally signed up for the wrong class as a freshman.
