Majors Fair, Friday, October 5th

Hey Arts & Sciences’ Students, are you still undecided about your major? Do you want to add a second major or a minor?

Come to the Majors Fair, Friday, October 5th from 1pm-4pm in the Villanova Room, Connelly Center.

Here’s some info on the event from the Majors Fair Committee:

The Majors Fair is a wonderful event to attend. Held each Fall, the event has been very helpful for students who are still looking for a major or who would like to see what other majors are out there. Consider it “major” shopping on a Friday afternoon!

With all of the different departments present, it is difficult not to come out of the fair with at least some idea of an academic path one might want to pursue. There will be multiple booths with all sorts of information regarding majors, as well as concentrations and minors within each department. Additionally, there will be tables with information on academic advising, internships, and professional development.

The Majors Fair Committee has been meeting regularly in order to make this the best majors fair yet!

This year, both attendees and volunteers will be able to enter a raffle to win the grand prize of dinner for two at Moshulu, as well as many other gifts!

Refreshments and snacks will be available during the event, as well! Hope to see you there!
