Exploration Fair

Exploration Fair Logo

The Exploration Fair is the fall semester's premiere event to discern and discover the next steps of your academic journey. 

Not sure about a major? Want to learn about minors? Have you discovered a new interest? Are you ready to learn beyond the classroom?

A partnership between the Center for University Advising, Meruelo Center for Career Development, and Student Government, the Exploration Fair is an opportunity for all first-year students to speak with faculty and upperclass students, compare possible majors and minors, and create connections with centers and research teams.
