By Meagan Beck firstname.lastname@example.org After changing his major and with working 29 hours a week, Tommy Miller, interdisciplinary studies in social science senior, decided to pursue a fifth year of college. While many students continue to finish a degree in four years, there are others who find five years more beneficial for them. Miller, who will be graduating this May, said he thinks going to college for a fifth year is becoming more common for some students. “I felt that extra year gave me some breathing room and was a better pace for me,” Miller said. Delaney Yancey, urban and regional planning senior, is finishing up her fifth year and will also be graduating in May. Yancey said she chose to take 12 credits during a majority of her college career because it fit better with her schedule. “If I would have taken 15 or 16 credits, I wouldn’t have been able to work,” Yancey said. She also said she chose to take classes that interested her, but weren’t necessarily required for her major.
