The EXCEL Center for Academic Excellence will hold its ninth annual Mardi Gras for Majors on Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 11 a.m. in the TLC Atrium.
With more than 1,000 students without a declared major and an untold number of others who are still insecure about their decision, this event will offer an opportunity for students to explore their options by talking to each academic department at UWG.
In addition to academic departments, a number of other student services departments will be at the event, including International Programs and Career Services. Refreshments and a raffle for door prizes will be made available to all attendees.
“This is going to be a one-stop shop,” said David Sluder, EXCEL Center advisor and coordinator for the event. “It will put everything UWG has to offer at students’ fingertips.”
