Eighth-Grade Majors Fair

Azusa Pacific University, in partnership with Citrus College, shares the common goal of encouraging the eighth-grade students of the Azusa Unified School District and St. Frances of Rome to pursue higher education. To do so, faculty, staff, and students from each campus join to create a hands-on experience, hosting interactive booths that introduce the many majors a student can choose from when they are college-bound.

This heritage event is unique in its ability to provide access to information leading to excitement about one day attending college. The Eighth-Grade Majors Fair is a strategic follow-up to APU’s College Headed and Mighty Proud (C.H.A.M.P.) program, in which fourth-grade students begin to explore career goals and dream about their future.

Thanks to the continued commitment of department representatives from APU and Citrus College, this yearly event features booths representing biblical studies and archaeology, English, art and design, liberal studies, math and physics, Spanish, music, administration of justice, athletic training, automotive technology, computer science, esthetician, history, nutrition, and more.

To experience a little of the fun and excitement of this event, watch some highlights from last fall’s fair.
