More about ‘Major Mania’
“Major Mania” is an annual major fair designed to give students the opportunity to talk with faculty and staff about majors, minors and other opportunities. All seven colleges participate by having representatives from their majors on hand to answer student and parent questions. A free raffle with baskets and prizes from the colleges and food and drinks will also be provided.
Career Services will showcase the resources the office has for students who are exploring majors and careers, including their career assessment options and “Career Communities”.
“We are excited about the collaboration among the colleges, academic support offices and Career Services who have come together to put this week of events together for our students,” said Avron Abraham, University Studies Program faculty director. “We want to make sure that students get the information they need and are able to take advantage of all the multitude of resources that are available as they chart their academic path.”
