3rd Annual Major Event
The 3rd Annual Major Event is today! We encourage you to take advantage of the wide range of programs, held virtually:
· Get inspired at our morning Kickoff program (10-11 am), featuring our Keynote Speaker, Kimberly Ellison-Taylor – Executive Director of Finance Thought Leadership at Oracle (and UMBC Alumni ‘93), and a panel of young alumni who will share stories of their journey from choosing a major to the careers they hold today.
· At the Majors Fair (11:30 am-1 pm), you’ll be able to learn about the vast and diverse undergraduate majors and programs at UMBC through dynamic online spaces created by each department. Enthusiastic faculty and staff will also be available to chat live!
· Following the Majors Fair, we encourage you to attend our Campus Support for Major Exploration (1:30-2 or 2-2:30pm) presentation and learn about additional offices on campus that can help you with the major exploration and the decision-making process.
· Finally, if you need the next step, come learn how to create your MAJOR Roadmap (3-4pm). In this interactive workshop, advisors from the Office for Academic & Pre-Professional Advising will show you how to develop an academic plan for the major you’ve selected.
Attendance at any of our programs can get you a free Major Event t-shirt and sticker (which we will mail directly to your home).
