West Virginia Universitys Undergraduate Academic Services Center is providing students an opportunity to learn more about the variety of degree programs offered by WVU .
Major Mania Week is April 14-18 outside the Evansdale Residential Complex (Towers) dining hall. From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. each day, students can visit with faculty from many of the Universitys colleges and departments, ask questions and receive information about undergraduate degrees and minors.
The event offers a venue for students who have not decided on a majoror who are interested in changing majorsto explore new options,said Maria Watson-Gaddis, senior program coordinator.
Many college-bound students are undecided about their major, direction of study or future career path, she said. To help students determine their objectives, advisers recommend identifying personal and career interests and then learning about academic programs that match those. Major Mania
