#MoodySpotlight: Today we are highlighting Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences student Tasha Anslyn from Austin, TX. Anslyn found her niche within the UT community. “When I transferred into @texasmoody, I immediately felt relieved to find the major I wholeheartedly love, accompanied by some of the most curious and creative professors and students I’ve ever met.” Anslyn said college has been the best place to explore and expand upon her academic interests. Her tip for fellow #TEXASMoody students is, “Take a risk and register for the class you’ve always wanted to take, especially if it’s completely unrelated to your degree. You might gain a new perspective, a new interest, and, if you’re like me, a new major!”
