Graduate School Fair to Take Place Sept. 20

VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota will host a graduate school fair Wednesday in the Muenster University Center for undergraduate students interested in learning more about applying to graduate school, law school, medical school or another professional programs.

Kassandra Girard, the employer relations adviser for USD’s Academic & Career Planning Center, said the event will be an excellent opportunity for students to ask questions about graduate school, as well as an opportunity for community members or alumni to look at options if they feel stuck in their career path and need a different direction or are looking to advance in their field.

“This is a great way to connect with program recruiters and faculty from across different fields and universities to learn more about what options are out there and what requirements they are looking for in candidates,” Girard said. “It’s also a great way for students, alumni, and community members to ask questions that might not be so easy to ask in an email or over the phone.”

The fair will take place between 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
