*         The Office of Student Advising Services<> will be teaming up with UB’s Career Services<> and the UB Alumni Association<> to sponsor the UB Majors & Careers Night. With over 300 students in attendance in 2013, this has continued to be a well-attended event for several years, with positive feedback being received from both students and staff regarding its success.
*         Our offices will again be hosting a Pre-Event Networking Tips Session from 5:00-5:30pm in 210 Student Union to help students learn techniques to get the most out of this event.
*         The philosophy behind the UB Majors and Careers Night is to be able to showcase all of the majors and programs available at UB and to allow students to explore the various academic options available to them. This event is particularly helpful for students who may be undecided about a major, those thinking about changing their major or assisting those students who may wish to add another major, minor, or certificate. Additionally, the event provides students with the opportunity to talk with various UB alumni and area professionals to learn about a variety of careers and how majors might relate to numerous career opportunities.
*         This year we would like to make every effort to have all majors at UB represented so that information regarding your programs can be shared with students. Furthermore, we also greatly encourage you to please bring along any faculty members, students, peer mentors, or alumni of your programs who you would like to participate and interact with our students.
*         Space for the UB Majors and Careers Night is limited!
*         We encourage you to please register online as soon as possible by visiting the following web site:
