What is Majors in Minutes?

Majors in Minutes is a way for students to learn more about a major. Its set up is similar to speed dating; every 8 minutes music will play and you have the choice to stay at your current table or visit a new one.

How does Majors in Minutes work?

If a major sounds interesting, you or a group of students can sit down and visit with an upper classman within the major to gather more information about it. After the bell rings, you may move to another major. Go to as many or as few as you would like!

When is the event?

Don't miss this opportunity! The event is being held Monday, October 24, 2016 in the Maucker Union Ballrooms from 7:00 - 9:00 pm.

Who will be there?

Hopefully, you and your friends! Junior and Senior students from the various majors will be there to share their experiences or answer your questions regarding a major. This is purely a student to student event. Talk to your RA or PAIR, grab a couple of friends and join us that night!

Where is the event?

Majors in Minutes will be hosted in the Maucker Union Ballrooms, Monday, October 24, 2016 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. See the map of the campus for assistance.
