UW-Eau Claire to Hold First
Graduate and Professional School Fair

RELEASED: Oct. 9, 2006

Graduate and Professional School Fair logoEAU CLAIRE — "Steps Toward Your Future," the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's first Graduate and Professional School Fair will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, in the Zorn Arena. Representatives from more than 30 schools with graduate programs will be at the fair, which is open to everyone in the Chippewa Valley and surrounding areas, including students from neighboring colleges and universities.

A wide variety of schools and programs will be represented at the fair, including medical schools, law schools, business schools and others. Information on UW-Eau Claire's graduate programs in English, history, business, nursing, psychology, special education, communication sciences and disorders, and curriculum and instruction also will be available.

According to Lori Scardino, vice president of the Golden Key International Honour Society and one of the coordinators of the fair, the idea for the event originated with students in Golden Key, an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

"Our chapter focuses on education based service projects," said Scardino. "When we posed the idea of sponsoring or hosting a Graduate School Fair to our members, we had an overwhelmingly positive response. We began plans for the fair last fall and quickly realized the magnitude of the project, so we partnered with Career Services to organize the fair."

Scardino shares her coordinating responsibilities with Tom Hahn, last year's Golden Key president. James Hahn is the current president.

"Our Golden Key executive board has been working for about a year to bring this event to the students of UW-Eau Claire," Scardino said. "We think it's a great opportunity for all students considering a post-baccalaureate education. Even if students are looking at schools besides the ones that will be attending the fair, they will obtain valuable experience by interacting with the representatives and asking questions."
