St. Charles Community College will host the Transfer and College Majors Fair from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, in the College Center Gymnasium on the SCC campus. The fair provides a way for students to explore the academic opportunities available to them at SCC as well as potential majors at other universities.
“The purpose of the fair is to provide opportunities for students to gather information about majors and careers from faculty, community employers and transfer colleges and universities,” said Martha Toebben, career services coordinating counselor. “We believe that when a student has a purpose, they are much more likely to stay in college.”
More than 50 majors will be represented at the fair this year, along with counselors and representatives from more than 25 Missouri colleges. The event is open to all current, former and prospective SCC students.
Individual booths, each representing a college major, will be set up in the College Center Gym. Students can talk with representatives at various tables inquiring about the college major and related career opportunities.
Booths staffed with admissions representatives from various colleges and universities will also be available for students interested in applying to and attending their universities. Students are encouraged to ask representatives any questions they may have about transferring.
The following colleges and universities will have representatives at the fair: Barnes-Jewish College – Goldfarb School of Nursing, Central Methodist University, Central Methodist University – St. Louis Adult Degree Program, Culver-Stockton College, Devry University, Hannibal-LaGrange University, Kaplan University, Lindenwood University, Lindenwood University – LCIE, Logan College of Chiropractic, Maryville University, Maryville University Weekend and Evening College, McKendree University, Missouri Baptist University, Missouri Southern State University, Missouri State University, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Ranken Technical College, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville, Southwest Baptist University, St. Louis University, Truman State University, University of Central Missouri, University of Missouri, University of Missouri – St. Louis, University of Missouri – St. Louis off-campus sites.
