Engage with alumni, community partners/employers, USF advisors and faculty, and other USF resources to discover your path to purpose.

The Majors Expo will be held in-person in the Marshall Center on the Tampa campus. Students can attend any time throughout the day. 

The event will feature rotating panel presentations every hour starting at 9am. These presentations will correspond with the United Nation Sustainability Goals. This will help USF students connect their choice of major to their ability to make an impact on the communities around them.

The event will also feature an open meet and greet where students can freely and casually interact with select advisors, older students, student clubs, USF resources, and employers to better understand opportunities available to help them choose a major and career. This portion goes all day from 9am-4pm.
