How to Prepare
Before you arrive at the Fair there are some things you can do to prepare for the most productive experience.
If you're unsure about how to match your interests to majors you might want to start by taking the Holland Code Quiz to determine where to start. Pick one up in our office in Bear Down Gym.
Once you know your Holland Code you can explore Degree Search. It offers the opportunity to search by interest area and types of majors. There you will find information on course requirements, career opportunities, and more.
When you arrive at the Fair there will be a list of questions handed to you. These are intended to help you have a conversation with advisors about your potential interests. The questions are listed below.
