September 11, 2018

ITTA BENA, Miss.— The Career Services Center at Mississippi Valley State University will host its Annual Graduate and Professional Schools Day Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, on the Concourse Level of the R.W. Harrison Sports Complex.

The event will offer participants the opportunity to interact and gain information in their pursuit to further their education with graduate studies.

Essie Bryant, director of MVSU’s Career Services Center, said the event is a great opportunity for individuals looking to pursue a postgraduate degree.

“This is an excellent opportunity to have face-to-face interaction with over 45 program representatives to learn what each school has to offer in terms of postgraduate studies," said Bryant.

Bryant said there are numerous reasons why interested individuals should attend the fair.

“You will be able to research programs that are offered by a variety of schools; compare different schools’ objectives, philosophies, and curriculums; discover what preparation you may need before you apply; or even evaluate whether to begin graduate school right after completing your undergraduate degree or to wait a few years,” she explained.

Ultimately, the fair will serve as a great way to help interested participants acquire information to help them make decisions about when and where they may apply for graduate programs.

For a prepared list of questions to ask the representatives, participants are encouraged to come by the Career Services Center located in the H.G. Carpenter Building.
