SUU combined with various other universities to present a Graduate School Fair to its students on Wednesday, September 19th.
“Our goal is to help graduate schools and students connect,” said Brandon Street, the Director of Career and Professional Developments at SUU.
Street said the fair was all about “admissions, networking, and to do it all in person.”
The Graduate School Fair gave students the opportunity to meet with more than 90 graduate schools and programs from surrounding areas.
“I received a lot of information about programs that I didn’t even know existed until now,” said Sam Stewart, a biology/pre-med major from Syracuse, Utah. “It helped me feel more comfortable with my future.”
The University hosts the fair every year, and it is open and free to all students, not just seniors.
“I think any student who has thought of going to graduate school before should come check it out,” suggested Stewart. “You never know what you’ll find.”
“Everyone should talk to us,” agreed Lynn Kvamme, a Regional Program Specialist in SUU’s Graduate Studies Office. “From Undergraduate to Graduate; we have programs for all.”
Students can find out more about what programs will be represented in the Fair at the SUU Career Center’s website.
“It’s good to check-out who’s coming and know who you want to talk to,” advised Street. “Dress nicely and have specific questions for the graduate schools.”
“Be ready to introduce yourself to lots of people,” Stewart added. “It’s good for networking.”
Students who would like to learn more about SUU’s graduate programs can also contact the SUU Graduate Studies Office, located in the Hunter Conference Center on campus.
