Going through sophomore slump or having junior jitters? Thinking of switching majors? Find out
what to switch to or if the grass just looked greener on the other side. We’ll have unbiased upperclassmen from every engineering discipline for you to ask questions like:
“How well did you major prepare you to get jobs and internships?”
“Did you ever want to switch majors”
“What is your favorite or least favorite part of your major?”
“Were your senior year classes worth going through your early classes for?”
Dinner will be served to ASBME members, but all are welcome!
