Annual Majors Fair
2012 Majors Fair was held October 24th . . .
. . . with 1446 undergraduates and all but 2 academic departments in attendance.
Each year in late October, Undergraduate Advising & Learning Communities and the Office of Undergraduate Advising sponsor a Majors Fair. We pull together - in one centralized location (the Campus Center) - representatives from virtually all departments on campus. Students can use this informal time to explore potential areas of study, whether it be for a major, minor, certificate or just curiosity! At the Majors Fair, students (undeclared or declared) can find out about more than 100 different academic programs offered at the University. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and current students to discuss an assortment of majors, minors and certificates as well as an array of career opportunities connected to the various majors.
The Fall 2013 Majors Fair will take place on the evening of Wednesday, October 30th.
