The nationally syndicated column Dear Abby recently featured a letter written by Joel Nossoff, UNM director of New Student Programs.

Nossoff responded to a reader who was interested in teaching, but felt torn because her mother wanted her to become a doctor.

“College Freshmen should avail themselves of the many opportunities in school to learn about themselves and about careers...to make a well-informed decision over time,” Nossoff advised, noting that many colleges offer freshmen seminars, learning communities and more for exploring careers.
