Second majors fair offered

Last week students had an opportunity to explore majors at a unique fair led by students for students in the cafeteria.

The event drew mostly freshmen and sophomores, who were looking for a variety of information. This fair was geared toward students who are not happy about their majors, are undecided majors, are trying to choose a minor, or are just first-year students looking for information.

Twenty-five student representatives from 15 majors participated. These students answered questions about their majors, their college experiences and their career plans.

The fair encouraged meaningful peer-to-peer interaction, which research shows is a primary factor in student retention. The event was hosted by Career Services.
