The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's second annual Majors Fair is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.
The goal of the fair is to provide information on all of UW-Eau Claire's majors, minors and pre-professional programs, said Rita Webb, adult opportunity adviser in Advising and Academic Testing.
"Faculty and students majoring in the various programs will be on hand at the Majors Fair to talk with interested students," Webb said.
All students may attend the fair, although the fair places particular emphasis on students who have not declared a major and those contemplating a change in majors or adding a minor or other emphasis to their current major.
This year's fair has been expanded to include high school seniors participating in campus visits, as well as students who are interested in transferring to UW-Eau Claire from two-year UW campuses and technical colleges in western Wisconsin, Webb said.
The fair, which is sponsored by UW-Eau Claire's Advising and Academic Testing, will provide a relaxed atmosphere to talk with faculty, department chairs and upperclass students in a variety of disciplines. Representatives from Academic and Career Services, the Center for International Education, the National Student Exchange program and the Center for Service-Learning also will be available to provide information and answer students' questions.
For more information, contact Webb at (715) 836-3259.
