Major Fair

Kirkhof Center » RM 2250 Grand River Room


Volunteer at the Academic Majors Fair and share what it's like to work in your particular field. The Academic Majors Fair is an opportunity for undecided students to explore a variety of degrees and career paths before declaring a major. Each major offered at GVSU will be represented with a table staffed by faculty who teach in that discipline along with an alumni volunteer who works in that field. Our students relate especially well to individuals who have been in their shoes and can speak about career paths based on real-world experience.

You need not necessarily have majored in your current line of work to participate. Volunteers may select to work one, two, or all three hours of the fair.

DATE: Wednesday, November 7
TIME: 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
LOCATION: Kirkhof Center, Grand River Room (No. 16 on Allendale Campus map)
MAP: 1 Campus Dr, Allendale, MI 49401
PARKING: A permit will be provided
