Career Days


group of students



The College of Education and Human Services (COEHS) invites you join us at one (or more) of our career days! We have chosen similar majors and put them together for a fun, interactive afternoon of getting to learn more about different majors and the opportunities that await you after graduation!

The half-day format is designed for you to spend a full day at Western if you choose to attend a Discover Western Open House.

Why should I do both programs, you ask?

The Discover Western open house is a full morning of meeting with academic and student services staff, talking with current WIU students and a great way for you to experience campus life.

COEHS Career Days takes an afternoon to look in-depth at your future career both at WIU and after graduation. You will have the opportunity to talk with faculty,  visit a college class or “mock” class, interact with current students and/or alumni, or engage in experiments or other hands on activities.

Our goal is for you to know exactly what you will do in your major and all of the opportunities that are available from earning a degree from Western Illinois University.
