Everyone's major sounds easy.
All I ever did was play piano all day in college. How hard could it have been?
College students who major in one of the fine arts have to use their time very wisely. The number of hours that must be invested in that field of study very likely surpasses some of the "tough" majors that people think would be so grueling and difficult.
Yes, college only ever is what you put into it. You can ALWAYS study that extra hour or research this extra thing on the side. I'm talking about doing the bare minimum work to make the grades and the credit hours.
There's a very good reason that Geno chose English instead of Art for his major-- time. He was spending all his time on football. If he tried combining that dedication to football with art, the results wouldn't have been very aesthetically pleasing at all.
