Professors Answer Students “Major Questions”—Photogallery

View PhotogalleryFreshmen and students who have not yet declared a major had the opportunity to talk with professors about their academic careers during the Major Questions event on November 1.

Nearly 100 students met with professors and upperclassmen stationed in South and West residence halls.  Every academic department, the Registrar’s office, and Off-Campus Programs were represented. Faculty members were also available to talk with students who have declared a major but who required more information about their program and academic expectations.

The event was scheduled the week before advising, giving students another opportunity to ask questions and gather information before choosing their courses for the spring semester.

“Major Questions provided me with the opportunity to see what minors are available and compatible with my social work major,” said Rochelle Burks ’14 of Downers Grove, Illinois. “For my classmates who haven’t yet declared a major, this event was another opportunity for them to ask questions about the variety of options Trinity offers.”

In the common area between the residence halls, students enjoyed refreshments and viewed the raffle prizes. To be entered in the raffle, students were required to talk with at least three professors and have them initial the form submitted into the drawing. Prizes included Trinity gear, Trinity blankets, Cooper Center mugs, and gift cards.

Major Questions was sponsored by First-Year Residence Life, the Office of the First-Year Experience, and the Cooper Career and Counseling Center.
