Hello, everyone! We hope you had a great spring break and had a chance to enjoy the lovely weather. As you start to think about registering for fall courses, many of you may still feel unsure about what you want to major in. This is completely normal! We've planned an event to help you learn more about CAS majors and to take away the stress of searching for your perfect major. Here's what you need to know:
Lights, Camera, Action! Finding your Perfect Major
When: April 4th, 5 pm- 7pm
Where: Letts Formal Lounge
What: The first portion of the event will be a panel-style discussion featuring peer advisors from the Career Center and CAS, as well as upperclassmen representing each area of CAS (arts, sciences, social sciences, humanities). For the second half of the event, we'll break into more informal discussions. You can talk one-on-one with our panelists and other upperclassmen about how they chose their major, what they like about it, and what they plan to do with their degree after college. Since we won't be able to have a representative from every department at the event, we will also have contact information available so you can get in touch with students via email to learn more about their majors.
Why you should come: As you may have guessed from our title, this event is movie-themed! This means lots of popcorn, candy, and even movie-related prizes. More importantly, the event is a great opporunity to meet other students and to hear about their experiences selecting a major.
Please email questions for our panelists to CASPeerAdvisors@american.edu. Spread the word, and we hope to see many of you there!
