The annual Majors Fair provided students an opportunity to learn more about UCF majors and academic program areas. Over 350 students attended this year’s Majors Fair which represented a 20 percent increase in participation over last year’s event. Over 41 booths were staffed by various colleges or departments to offer information to freshmen and undecided students.
The fair theme was “UCF and the Chamber of Majors” and several departments ran with the Harry Potter motif. Three booths were awarded with gift certificates for best décor: Theatre Department, Department of Writing and Rhetoric, and College of Education and Human Performance which took top honors with their Hogwarts-themed booth, including wands, owls, and a student representative dressed as Harry Potter.
Continuing with the theme of the event, two tickets to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando were raffled off at the end of the event. To enter the raffle, student attendees had to complete a “passport” with facts learned about different majors or academic programs. Freshman Psychology major Maleah McLean was thrilled to have won the tickets to the Wizarding World. Students also had the opportunity to win “Chamber of Majors” T-shirts by sharing what they had learned at the event.
