Degree Discovery Day is a two-hour, fair style event during Major Exploration Week. On Wednesday, Oct. 6 from 2-4 P.M. in the Milo Bail Student Center, 30+ academic departments will be available for students to learn more about specific majors, minors, and programs.
This event is open to all students – whether you are exploring your major, currently declared but trying to find a better fit, thinking about adding a minor, or just planning for your future.
We will also have giveaways including free t-shirts for the first 100 students.
There will be no virtual option to attend Degree Discovery Day, but you can check out other Major Exploration Week events if you are unable to make it!
