With spring semester comes applications, applications and more applications. Undergraduate students are attending informational sessions and major career fairs. Resumes are being critiqued, and cover letters are being polished.
In 2007, Karen Adams, the Interim Director of the Fellowships Office began her career at Tech and decided to attend a National Association of Fellowship Advisors Conference. There she heard of the concept of an “Open Forum,” a forum through which students engage in discussions to express their opinions.
One of the major decisions a student goes through in their college degree is deciding what to study. From the time of applications to actual attendance at a college or university, students are pressed to figure out what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Students consider several factors before picking a major. Some students choose a field for the opportunities they hope to have while others choose it based on their interests.
