When facing a multitude of choices that have a powerful impact on their futures, students often find choosing a major to be both stressful and challenging.
To find the assistance and information students need to make this important decision, University College encourages them to attend the annual Majors Fair, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, in the Baker University Center Ballroom.
Students who attend will have the opportunity to explore the more than 270 majors that the University offers, as well as a number of minors and certificate programs.
Deans, assistant deans, and faculty will provide students with information and answer questions about the selection process.
The Majors Fair is also a great opportunity for students who have determined a major to explore and choose minors, certificates, and experiential education options. A university-wide event, the fair
welcomes students from all colleges and majors, as well as prospective students.
"It's the only time during the year that all of the colleges and majors, minors and certificates are represented in one place," co-chair of the Majors Fair Committee Tanya Barnett said. "[Students] can declare those on-site and talk to the faculty members that are experts in those areas."
Barnett said the fair also will provide information about internships, education abroad and academic services across campus. In addition to this valuable knowledge, students who attend will also receive free food and be eligible for giveaways.
This year's Majors Fair is one of the fall opportunity fairs sponsored by multiple departments, including the Office of Education Abroad, the Campus Involvement Center, and the Career and Leadership Development Center.
The Education Abroad Fair will take place on Sept. 16, followed by the Volunteer Fair on Sept. 19 and the Career & Internship Fair on Sept. 24.
