Join the Career Center and Cross College Advising for an unforgettable experience!


Are you looking for the major you can call "the one"?
Let us be your guide as you find your major!

Have you met your major?
Let us introduce you!

All participants will attend the following sessions:

Values & Self Discovery
This interactive session will explore your uniqueness. Learn how to use what you know about yourself (talents, past experiences, things that are important to you, etc.) to explore majors that have the potential to be the right fit for you.

Discovery Party & Major Exploration
Have you ever wondered if what you see is what you get? Have you ever watched a TV show and thought, "that is exactly what I want to do"? But is it what you REALLY want to do? From online resources to internships, there are so many ways to figure out if the major fits. This engaging session will give you tips and strategies for doing the research.

Assessment Interpretation
The FOCUS is on YOU! Know yourself. Add value! Articulate that added value. This session will allow you to focus on and explore your interests, values, personality, and skills by means of an assessment interpretation.

Student Panel
Ever believe in "major at first sight?" Interact with USC Students that found their major-match as they describe their journey. Was it a perfect fairytale or did they get more of what they bargained for?

Making the Front Cover
Picture yourself on the front cover of a magazine. What is the title of that magazine and why are you on it? This interactive session will explore your end goals and tie that into what you are doing at USC TODAY!Top
