Majors Fair

Wednesday, November 1, 2023 | 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Location: Grand River Room, Kirkhof Center

The Majors Fair offers an opportunity for students to explore major choice options with faculty from various departments across the University. This event provides an informal way for students to engage with faculty members to discuss major choices and future career opportunities. Our alumni are invited to participate which gives students an opportunity to network and learn about the world of work.

Louie is very worried about not being able to find a major at GVSU! Luckily, his friends know just the right event that can ease Louie's head. Eventually, Louie and the gang arrive at the Majors Fair! He is impressed with all the majors and their booths available to him. With all this help, he finally is able to select a major.
