Graduate & Professional School Fair
Friday, Oct 16, 12:30 PM – 3 hours – Careers

Representatives from over 100 graduate and professional schools will be here to answer your questions regarding graduate studies! For pre-law, pre-med, or scholarly students hoping to do research as a career, this will be an invaluable source of information. And even for those who are primarily interested in working after graduation, let's face it: with the current economic crisis, it has become much harder for us to find jobs, and pursuing graduate studies can be a great way to develop more marketable skills while the economy recovers.
