NMSU grad fair will present opportunities for all students

New Mexico State University Career Services will hold the 2010 Graduate and Professional School Fair to give all students, regardless of their major or year in school, the chance to meet with admissions representatives from various graduate and professional school programs.

The fair will be held Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first and second floors of Corbett Center Student Union. About 60-65 schools from across the nation will be present at the event, including the University of Kansas, the University of New Mexico, Penn State University and Texas Tech University. A full list of participant can be found at http://careerservices.nmsu.edu.

Students are encouraged to prepare for the Graduate and Professional School Fair by knowing what kind of school they are interested in and bringing any documentation, such as research, portfolios, manuscripts, etc., to show what they have to offer to a university. Students should also prepare questions they wish to ask the school, such as requirements for the school and what graduate assistant positions are available.

Career Services offers help for students in writing their personal statement of interest, a requirement from graduate schools in the application process. There is also a library resource center at the Career Services offices where students can use resources to prepare and research schools. The office is located in Garcia Annex Room 224.
