MAJOR FUN AT THE MAJOR EXPO

By the Major Exploration Team, University College

For the 11th year in a row, the University of Utah will hold its Major Exploration Expo on Sept. 30, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Union Ballroom. With more than 100 academic departments and student support agencies gathered in one place, the expo is the biggest and best place to explore majors, minors, internships and research and learning abroad opportunities. It’s free, casual, informative and fun.

How does it work?
On Sept. 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., faculty, staff and student representatives of the university will host walk-up tables in the A. Ray Olpin Union Ballroom. It’s a meet-and-greet setting, a chance to chat informally with the experts from that program, to gather information and enjoy some face time with professors and staff in an inviting, friendly atmosphere. The key here is casual. No appointments, no plans, no transcripts—just you and the major representative talking about the fields of study intriguing you.

Already have a major?
Program representatives are eager to chat with you about minors, internships, research, further education, service and leadership projects and career opportunities. This is a chance for you to explore ways to further tailor and diversify your degree, ensuring you get the most out of your time at the U.

Why explore?
When students are excited about, and engaged in, their studies, they earn better grades, build stronger interpersonal networks, develop better professional skills and learn how to articulate their assets after completing their degree. Finding the right major means finding a deeper and more satisfying U experience, with better opportunities for life after college. The expo makes the beginning of your major exploration process easy, stress free and enjoyable. It’s an open invitation to the simplest way to see so much of what the University of Utah has to offer, and it’s all in one place.
