NSU’s Office of Career Development will host a Graduate School Fair on Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Don Taft University Center Spine, inviting students and alumni to learn about graduate and professional programs from all around the nation.
Representatives from 64 graduate schools and professional programs will have tables, where they’ll hand out pamphlets, answer questions, and provide more information on their schools’ opportunities. The programs will cover a wide array of academic and professional fields, including medicine, law, education, art, psychology, and pharmacy.
The Office of Career Development’s advisors hope that the fair will help students distinguish between each school, so that they can determine which ones best meet their personal goals.
Rob Keever, career advisor, said that depending on an individual’s professional goals, graduate school may provide a more “specialized and more hands-on learning experience.”
He said, “You may one day reach a point in your career when graduate school needs to come into play, so being exposed now will help in the long run.”
Nathalie Zaher, sophomore biology major, agrees that it’s never too early for students to start thinking about graduate school. She said, “It’s extremely important for undergrads to be exposed to graduates schools early on so that we learn what we need to do to get in. You want to be as prepared as possible so that your transition into grad school is easier.”
April Klimkiewicz, assistant director of career advisement and pre-professional services, believes that all the participating representatives will be extremely welcoming towards NSU students and alumni.
She said, “All of the school’s representatives are really excited to meet NSU’s students. We had to close registration because we filled capacity, but many still called trying to get in. They’re all really excited to be here.”
Participants of the fair are advised to bring their NSU SharkCards to scan at each table. For more information, call 954-262 – 7201, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.nova.edu/career.
