The Academic Exploration Fair, held Tuesday at the Abraham Campus Center, was meant to help students who have yet to choose a major, find the right major for them.
More than a dozen departments showed up to showcase their programs for about 175 undecided students.
“The goal is to help students explore different majors and minors that they maybe haven’t considered.” Brooke Grasso, an academic advisor and organizer of the event said.
Students were incentivized with food and the chance to be entered into a raffle for La Verne merch.
Some students, who had already declared their majors, were also there checking out potential minors or major changes.
“I will be adding a minor in business to my academic pursuits,” said Laila Williams, sophomore kinesiology major, who attended the event.
Some booths offered activities to give students a feel for different disciplines.
The chemistry department had students create mini-catapults and calculate projectile motion.
Academic advisors were also on to address major and career questions.
