Majors fair 2022: NU SEDS representatives helped undecided students navigate their academic careers

On September 15, NU SEDS participated in Majors Fair. This interactive and insightful event organized by the Academic Advising Office at the University atrium lasted two hours.

During this time, first-year students and N.U.’s Foundation Year Program (NUFYP) students had an opportunity to talk with professors of six NU SEDS Departments to get detailed information about the school’s six undergraduate programs.

Participants also had the opportunity to talk directly with students who have been successful in their major and learn more about the major, career opportunities, and research projects.

This fall, the Academic Advising Office prepared a special event for participants – AAO Talks. It is a one-hour panel discussion with N.U. faculty members, students, and alums who spoke about their experiences and how they achieved their goals in the field of their interest.

The AAO Talks from SEDS featured student Edige Akimali whose project “Soyles” won the international video pitching competition Big Idea Challenge, held with the British Council’s support. Edige Akimali is a freshman at the NU School of Engineering and Digital Sciences. (NU SEDS), majoring in computer science.
