Title: Color Me a Major!
Lead Presenter: Alicia Apperson
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Meta Majors are all the rage - yet this concept can still be confusing to incoming freshmen. Find out how the academic advising & career services units at our University utilized Holland's RIASEC model to create Interest Area Colors. Based on colors chosen, students could opt for General Education/Exploratory courses within their broad interest areas. In addition, students were given lists of student clubs and organizations which matched their color/interest areas. The staff then carried this theme into our major exploration event, Eagle Expo, where students could explore academic majors which aligned with their color/interest areas. Students and parents really appreciated the personalized information and academic departments loved the renewed attention from students who may not have given them a second look in the past!
