Registration coming soon!


Majors in Minutes is hosted during the fall semester by the Office of Academic Advising to allow current UNI students to explore majors from students who are currently enrolled in those majors. Using a speed-dating style, students spend eight minutes per table asking questions and learning more about a particular major.  After those eight minutes are up, music plays and students can choose to either stay at that table or check out another major table. Students can visit as many or as few tables as they would like!

Upper-class students in every major are at Majors in Minutes to share their experiences and answer any questions about their major. This event is purely student-to-student and a great way to learn more about different majors!
