The annual Choices Fair is an opportunity for you to learn about the nearly 100 majors and minors at Case Western Reserve University. Faculty representatives from every academic department will be on hand to answer questions at this engaging event.
You will also have a chance to discover some of the experiential education and extracurricular opportunities the university offers as members from student academic groups, multicultural clubs and community service organizations will be in attendance. Staff representing opportunities for study abroad, undergraduate research, career services and more will also be present.
The fall 2023 Choices Fair will be held Friday, Sept. 29, from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. in the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center. During this time faculty, staff and student representatives will be on hand to introduce you to academic and experiential learning opportunities.
First-year students may be expected to attend the Choices Fair as a part of the Explore Curriculum. The Choices Fair is also a great opportunity for second-year students that are still exploring possible majors and minors.
Following the Choices Fair, departments and organizations host events to help you continue to explore your interests. Consider attending these events to learn more and confirm your interests. Events will be added throughout the start of the Fall semester.

Recommendations for Pre-Major Advisors
Here are some helpful tips and techniques to encourage student engagement with the fair and maximize their experience.
- Remind students to attend the Choices Fair and share the Choices Fair webpage for additional information on participation.
- Have students develop a list of program resources or booths they’d like to visit during the fair.
- Encourage students to share their experiences at the fair. This could be through check-in conversations at the beginning of class, discussion board posts, or brief reflections.
- Consider having students attend as a “group.” Students could gather as a class and engage in the fair.
