Idaho State University to hold majors fair Oct. 4, graduate/health professions fair Oct. 12

Posted September 7, 2012

Idaho State University will present the ISU Majors and Minors Fair Oct. 4 and the ISU Graduate Programs and Health Professions Fair Oct. 12.

The ISU Majors and Minors Fair "Explore a World of Majors," will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4 in the ISU Pond Student Union Ballroom. It will focus on undergraduate programs available at ISU, to assist students in choosing their major and minor programs.  ISU Students must declare a major by the time they are a junior (58 credits) and it is recommended to narrow down major and minor choices by the end of freshman year. 

Central Academic Advising is promoting a "Declare Your Major" campaign at the Majors and Minors Fair and throughout the 2012-2013 academic year. This campaign is designed to help students understand the steps to take before declaring a major, such as departmental and career exploration, testing academic aptitude for possible majors of choice and fully understanding departmental requirements.     

The ISU Graduate Programs and Health Professions Fair on Oct. 12 will be held in the ISU Pond Student Union Ballroom from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Post-bachelor's degree health professions programs from ISU and around the country will be available to talk with students and others who are interested in pursuing professional health care degrees in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, physician assistant studies and other allied health fields.  Additional ISU Graduate School programs will promote their options for students interested in continuing their education at ISU beyond a bachelor’s degree. 

Both these events are part of the semester-long Harvest Your Potential series sponsored by Central Academic Advising.  For more information on these fairs or Harvest Your Potential, visit or contact Nancy Goodman at or 208-282-3277.
