UT will hold Major-Palooza Wednesday, Feb. 4, from noon to 4 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium on Main Campus.

Major-Palooza is a fair designed to help students explore majors and careers.

Each year, approximately 500 students and 50 departments representing more than 70 majors attend this event, according to Terri Burnett, assistant director of Career Services. A student evaluation indicated that more than 50 percent of students are able to declare a major after attending Major-Palooza.

“This is a good opportunity for students to look at all the undergraduate and some graduate colleges at UT and talk to representatives from every department,” Burnett said.

The fair helps inform participants about departmental offerings and where alumni are finding jobs.

Major-Palooza is co-sponsored by the Student Success Center and Career Services.
