Monday- the Exploring Interests and Majors Fair and the CLA More Than a Major Fair will be held on the same day (Monday, March 7). These events are both geared to help students make some major decisions, but they are very different events, sponsored by different groups and each having a distinct purpose. Both event are free and are open to all UofM students.
Exploring Interests and Majors (EIM) Fair- March 7 from 10am-2pm in the Great Hall at Coffman Memorial Union
EIM is sponsored by a collective of career counseling and academic advising from all of the colleges at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. The event focuses on helping students explore their interests and skills and learning what majors could be a good fit for them. Students can learn about majors in all colleges across campus. Additionally, EIM helps students identify campus resources and engagement opportunities that may be of
interests, including information about national and international study.
This is the event for you if you are still exploring your major options and want more information about how your skills and interests match with UofM majors.
CLA More than a Major Fair- March 7 from 10am-2pm in the President's Room at Coffman Memorial Union
The More than a Major Fair (MTMF) is sponsored by the CLA Student Board. The MTMF provides an opportunity for students interested in specific CLA majors the opportunity to learn more about those majors from advisers who specialize in them.
This is the event for you if you already have a few ideas about what you want to major in (in CLA) and want to find out more in-depth information about the program requirements, pre-requisites and departmental opportunities. Or, once you've visited the EIM and have a major or two you'd like to learn more about, come upstairs to meet with an adviser about your choices.
