An Introduction to Graduate & Professional Schools Information Day

Completing a four-year degree is the ideal gateway to enter the workforce. However, for some, continuing with a post-graduate degree may seem like an ever more appealing option.

On Oct., 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Career Resource Center (CRC) is hosting its 27th Annual Graduate and Professional Schools Information Day for all University of Florida students and alumni who are interested in pursuing a graduate or professional degree.

More than 150 programs from all over the country will gather at the Reitz Union Grand and Rion Ballrooms at the event to answer students’ questions about the application process, financial aid, student life, campus visits, or any other relevant topics concerning graduate school.

This event is structured to be casual and relaxed, which allows students to come “as they are”, with no need to “dress to impress” or bring their resumes.

According to Angel Iverson, assistant director for career events at the CRC, all students can benefit from this event. Freshmen and sophomores have the opportunity to learn which classes they should take if they want to pursue a specific graduate degree. Juniors, seniors and alumni will benefit by learning about the admissions process and financial aid. Either way, this is also a great chance to network because several schools from around the country, send representatives who are typically involved in the selection process.

Some of the programs that will be in attendance are:

-       Columbia Law School

-       Duke University (Engineering)

-       Notre Dame Law School

-       Ohio Northern University

-       Savannah College of Art and Design

Interested? Just drop by in between classes!
