Multiple Majors

From the New York Times:

Having honed the habit of achievement in the race to get into college, students are increasingly pursuing double, triple and even quadruple majors when they get there, amassing credentials they hope will show their diligence and, perhaps, give them an edge getting into graduate school or landing a job in a difficult market.

Fine by me if you want to multi-major, but 42% doing it seems like a sign that the work isn’t very challenging.
