Do you have any advice for interested or newly declared majors?

Economics is a field of study that you can really do anything with, and because of that the major offers opportunities to not only study whatever you are interested in, but also connects you with so many people involved in various fields, adding to your human capital. Don’t be afraid to ask around and take advantage of all of the resources the Econ Department has to offer!
