The Major Network

The Major Network is a University of Minnesota cross-college network that connects upper-level students who are passionate about their majors, with students who are exploring different major options. Exploring students are paired with an upper-level mentor in a low-key and time-commitment-friendly environment where students can receive a firsthand look at what it is like to be a student in a particular major. Exploring Students and Mentors collaborate to ask questions and share information about their major(s) of interest in a variety of ways:

  • Attending an upper-division class together
  • Meeting for coffee or corresponding via email to ask and answer questions
  • Attending a meeting or event hosted by a related student group together
