ATHENS, Ohio (Oct. 17, 2005) -- Graduate Student Senate will host the Ohio University Graduate Programs Fair Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. in the Walter Hall Rotunda. The event is free and aims to encourage current Ohio University undergraduates to consider pursuing a graduate degree at Ohio University.
"The Graduate Programs Fair will give students and community members a better understanding of the excellent opportunities that Ohio University offers in terms of graduate school," said Mark Mecum, Graduate Student Senate president.
The Graduate Programs Fair will allow attendees to meet department representatives and current graduate students. Senators from Graduate Student Senate will also be on-hand to discuss opportunities for leadership and campus involvement with interested students.
In addition to Ohio University undergraduates, Graduate Student Senate has invited students from neighboring universities such as Miami University, Ohio State University, Marietta College and Marshall University to attend the Graduate Programs Fair.
"The decline in graduate enrollment this year was a disappointment and we want to work to prevent that from occurring again next year," Mecum added.
Graduate Student Senate is proud to work with Graduate Studies to host the Graduate Programs Fair.
Ohio University offers more than 55 graduate degrees in total.
