The 4th Annual Shippensburg University Major/Minor Fair kicked off Thursday in the quad, inviting students and faculty to network and learn about academic programs and classes.
“It’s critical for student success,” said Victoria Kerr, the director of the Career and Community Engagement Center (CCEC). “It gives an opportunity for students to connect with faculty.”
The CCEC partnered with the SU School of Academic Programs and Services to hold the fair.
Every academic department was represented at the fair, Kerr said.
The event, which offered free pizza and prizes, attracted hundreds of students from 3–5 p.m.
Denise Yarwood, the Assistant Dean of SU’s Office for Exploratory Studies, and CCEC graduate assistant Jocelyn Chavous were key individuals in organizing the event, Kerr said.
Chavous said the fair is important for students because it lets them know they have a support system for their education. It also helps a student find a career path that includes his or her passion, she said.
