Many graduate and professional schools seek to further student enrollment by participating in campus events and other related venues that provide exposure.  The following Graduate School preparation events may allow colleges a chance to promote and inform about their academic programs.  We welcome a wide range of graduate and professional school representation to our campus! 


Grad School Expo: Each year, in the fall semester, the Career Development Center hosts an annual Graduate School Expo. We invite graduate school reps to join us to meet our very bright, diverse and talented students seeking to pursue graduate and professional study.

Grad School Programming: The Career Development Center offers informative graduate school workshops and events. Not only do we host our popular Grad School Expo, but students and alumni take advantage of a variety of informative workshops such as So You Want To Go To Grad School, Going to Grad School Without Going Broke, Make a Statement! Personal Statement Workshop, Getting In: Admissions Workshop. We welcome graduate school programs to co-sponsor and present on these and other graduate school planning topics. Contact us for more information.


Graduate School Expo Participant Guide: Grad Expo Participants have the opportunity to gain additional exposure in our Grad School Expo Guide. The guide is distributed to all attendees and available in the Career Development Center after the Expo. Web advertising is also available.  For more information, visit our Grad School Expo page.

Graduate School University Logo Branding: When you contribute branding support prior to our Graduate School Expo, your college program logo placement on our website will inform and promote the variety of options available before, during, and after the event. 

Graduate School Planning Guide: The Career Development Center produces a widely distributed Graduate School Planning Guide. Students and alumni receive this educational resource in graduate school advising appointments, workshops, classes, and at various locations around campus. The guide is available both online and in the Career Development Center. Students and alumni have come to rely on this useful resource to help as they explore their graduate school options and navigate the application and admissions process. We invite graduate school programs to contribute their advertisements in this well circulated guide for students.


Information Tables: An Information Table can be set up during the spring semester in the lobby of Campus Center North, a high-traffic area.  This is an informal way for students to meet with you and learn about your graduate school programs. Table availability is on a first-come-first serve basis at no charge. Vendor fees may apply for multiple recruitment visits.

Information Sessions: Graduate school reps have the opportunity to present to groups of students.  Information sessions, student club or classroom visits may be arranged to educate students about your graduate school programs.


Students appreciate workshops presented by graduate school experts. College representatives share their expertise on a specific topics (personal statements, admissions, interviewing, etc.) providing students with valuable tips and knowledge, while introducing them to your university and programs. Multi-media technology is available to enhance your presentations.
