Undeclared majors find guidance at USM

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Out of an undergraduate student body of just under ten thousand, Southern Miss has about 437 undeclared majors.

To help those students pick a field of study they'll actually stick with, the University hosted their first ever "Find a Major Fair" at the Thad Cochran Center.

Representatives from all five academic colleges were on hand to explain their offerings and guide students towards a major in sync with their personality and interests.

To help students select a concentration, computers were set up to dispense personality and values based tests. The fair continues Thursday, March 25th from ten am to two pm. It is open to the public.
