Choosing a major is often a difficult decision for students. Helping our students find their 'fit' sooner rather than later can positively influence persistence and completion.

Your support of the Majors & Minors Fair is an expression of your commitment to the education of our students and we sincerely thank you!

Students do not need to register in advance to attend the Majors & Minors Fair.

Goals of the Majors & Minors Fair

The Majors & Minors Fair provides students with an opportunity to meet with faculty and professional advisors to discuss a variety of possible majors as well as many available career opportunities connected to each major.

The goal of the M&M Fair expands beyond simply advising (even though advising is, of course, a crucial component) to include career and major exploration, minors, study abroad, and other components of the academic experience.
