Studying Graphic design but I want to be a Artist?

Anonymous
I'm in University studying graphic design as a first year student.
I have only really studied Art in highschool. I hoped that it would have helped me in starting Graphic design but it hasn't really so far. People look at my art and ask why I'm doing graphic design. The only reason I'm studying to be a graphic designer is because it seems like a more financially stable job, but I really do want to be an artist and all I want to do is work on my paintings, so much so that I struggle to focus on my uni work and I fall behind.
What would you think is the right thing to do in this situation?
