West Virginia University will hold a Graduate and Professional School Fair in the Mountainlair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 22. Representatives from various WVU graduate programs will be available to share information on admission requirements and program details. The fair is free and open to the public.
“We have outstanding graduate programs here at WVU that allow students to further their education and broaden their research interests,” said Dr. Tracey Sheetz, director of WVU Office of Graduate Admissions and Recruitment. “Our goal is to educate our undergraduate students on the benefits of a graduate degree and make them aware of the many options they have for graduate education here.”
The fair will also include information sessions on topics relevant to those considering graduate education. Sessions will include a panel discussion on “Funding Ideas and Opportunities for Graduate School” at 10 a.m., “How to Write a Statement of Purpose” at 11 a.m., “GRE Preparation Tips” at noon and “What Graduate Admission Committees Are Really Looking For” at 1 p.m. All sessions will be held in the Mountaineer Room on the second floor of the Mountainlair.
Students attending are encouraged to swipe their Mountaineer Card at the registration table to be entered into drawings for various prizes including graduate application waivers valued at $60.
