The College of Agriculture hosts a career fair and other events every fall and spring semester. This year, the College is using Career Fair Plus (CFP) for all career fairs.  Students must sign up for schedules to be admitted to the fair area. Because fair organizers will be required to monitor capacity, students will rotate in and out of the fair area based on their scheduled times. Students, download the CFP app from App Store or Googleplay.
