KALAMAZOO--Area students and residents may explore their options for advanced studies during the 2011 Graduate and Professional School Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10, in the Bernhard Center Ballroom on Western Michigan University's main campus.

The free fair is being sponsored by Kalamazoo College and WMU. Although open to the general public, it is geared toward junior and senior college students as well as recent alumni of the two sponsoring institutions. Pre-registration is not required, and free parking will be available in Parking Structure No. 1 at the corner of West Michigan Avenue and North Dormitory Road.

In attendance will be representatives from more than 50 graduate, law and medical schools in Michigan and throughout the United States, including WMU, the University of Michigan and Andrews, Bowling Green State, Indiana, Michigan State, Midwestern, Notre Dame and Wayne State universities.

Those attending the Graduate and Professional School Fair will be able to learn about some of WMU's 100 graduate programs as well as graduate offerings available at other institutions in such varied areas as business, health care, law, library science, oceanography and psychology.

Attendees seeking tips on how to apply to graduate and professional schools may participate in one of three workshops being held just before the fair starts. No registration is required for these events, which will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Bernhard Center, near the fair's main exhibit hall. The focus and locations of the workshops are: Applying to Law School, Room 211; the Graduate Application Process, Room 212; and Applying to Medical School, Room 213.
