Students explore opportunities at CHHS Student Expo

On Nov. 2, the College of Health and Human Services held its second annual CHHS Student Expo. At this event, the college invites student groups, campus entities and organizations from the greater Kalamazoo Community to come into the college, meet our students and demonstrate what they have to offer to students.

Departments and schools within the college use the Expo as an opportunity to recruit students. Programs that are new to the college, like the Bachelor of Science in Public Health, were able to let current students know about their rapidly growing field.

"For students who come to this college and don't know exactly what they want to focus on or who need to find another option to pursue, events like this are a good opportunity for us to tell them what we have to offer," says Dr. Mark Kelley, director of the School of Interdisciplinary Health Programs.

Undergraduate research was a focus at this year's event. Instructors across the University have been encouraged to work more with undergraduate students in their research. Opportunities for students in this area continue to grow at CHHS.

In addition to the great information at the Expo, students found free food and giveaways and registered in drawings for exciting prizes like a tablet and Bluetooth speaker.
