On Tuesday, April 14 the Career Services Center hosted the 1st Annual Meet Your Major Fair. The focus of this campus-wide event is to assist students in selecting their major and to promote their direct engagement with instructional faculty in their decision-making process. Over 300 students attended the fair between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. and the overwhelming response has been very positive from students and faculty.
A special thank you to the Associated Students of Skyline College which sponsored silicone wristbands for students with slogans reading: Majoring in Justice4All, Innovation, Art Making, Wellness, Deep Thoughts, or Change Making. These slogans highlighted the different reasons students decide upon a major, focusing on the impact that major will have.
In addition to this, students had the opportunity to share their views on their decision making process and what they hope their Major will allow for them, through two interactive boards.
The first board stated “I Will Choose My Major Based On…” and asked students to choose one of three options: “Following My Passion,” “Making a Difference” or “Something I’m Good At.”
The second board stated “I Hope My Major Will Allow Me To…” and asked students to choose a response, including: Provide for my family and help others w/ life; Give the life I didn’t have to my kids; Engineer the FUTURE; Make a change in my Latino community; Travel and see the world; Wake up every day with a smile on my face; Become an awesome Math teacher
