What is "Major Madness"?

Major Madness is a three-week period in February when the Business Career Center (BCC) and Undergraduate Academic Services (UAS) will be presenting Academic and Career Essentials ("ACE") sessions for each major. 

These 45 minutes workshops are held almost daily at 12:15 or 4:00 and are designed to help students learn:

  • Career options related to a particular major
  • Which courses to take and when
  • Skills necessary for success
  • Advice from upperclassmen in their major(s) or intended major(s)
Students can attend as many sessions that interest them and do not need to pre-register. ACE sessions are open to all students. Check Today in Grainger Hall for all workshop locations.
