Spring 2022 Grad Expo FAQs

Do I need to attend both the in-person Grad Expo as well as the virtual Grad Expo?

No, you choose which of the options works best for your current situation and availability.

What is the difference between the two options?

Virtual Grad Expo allows for you to receive the same information as the in-person experience. In-person Grad Expo allows for you to speak directly to the vendor representatives and personally ask them any questions that you may have.

Will the in-person Grad Expo be COVID-19 compliant?

Yes, there will be hand sanitizer and directional signage reminding participants to keep social distance throughout the Alumni Center.

Please remember to bring your mask with you and put it on before you enter the Alumni Center to check-in. We will also have designated staff members monitoring the number of individuals that enter the Alumni Center at one time to ensure that we remain compliant with the current capacity guidelines.

If you do not feel comfortable attending the event in person, please select the virtual option.
