Graduate School Fair Allows Students to Compare Prospective Programs
April 08, 2010
Thirty-five graduate schools showcased their programs at Mount Union College recently -- one of the many career and educational opportunities provided for students.
Students were able to talk to admissions representatives from programs ranging from seminary and theological to medical and nursing to business and economics. Between 40 to 60 students walked through the fair, which Rebecca Doak, director of career development, called a "comparative shopping event."
Doak said this event has been planned so graduate schools are brought to the students and they do not have to go through the searching and application process long-distance.
"It made it easier for the students," Doak said, who noted the recruiters were pleased with their viable student candidates for each graduate school program.
Each year, the graduate school fair has grown, and this was the largest-ever.
Career services is also offering off-campus job fairs and on-campus recruiting for the remainder of the school year. The next graduate school fair will be next fall.
