Employers - don't miss the chance to recruit candidates for internships, as well as professional and graduate school opportunities from across all majors. If you'd like to be notified once registration opens for this event, please submit your email address.
Majors in Minutes
Starting this fall, we are rolling out a new opportunity to engage students in exploring academic programs. Majors in Minutes will replace the fall Majors Fair event. Majors in Minutes allows CWU students to explore majors with students who are currently enrolled in those majors. Using a speed-dating approach, students spend 10 minutes with a CWU junior/senior from a major of interest, asking questions and learning more about that particular area of study. After time is up, students can choose to either stay at that table or choose a major at a different table to learn about. Students can visit as many or as few majors as they would like.
Majors in Minutes was held in November 2022 and has not yet been scheduled for 2023.
Lynnwood Etiquette Dinner
This year's Etiquette Dinner has already occurred and has not yet been scheduled for 2024.
Education Career Fair
