Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Select A Major Fair

Each year we use this event to showcase the many majors and minors for students who are still exploring options before deciding on a specific major. This year will include guest speakers from the Counseling Center and Career Services who will be providing students with tips on choosing a major during the general session. After the general session, students will be able to join a breakout session with their college of choice. All academic colleges will be represented to discuss their majors and minors with students. Students will be given a short assignment to complete as they visit each session for a chance to win prizes.

This year's event will take place virtually on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 9:00 am-12:00 pm. This event will be offered three times, 9 am, 10 am, and 11 am. Students are asked to pre-register for the time that is most convenient for their schedule.
