Cadets from the U.S. Military Academy Class of 2025 speak to instructors and professors from the academic departments about exploring their best fit for a major during the 2025 Majors Fair Open House Tuesday in Thayer Hall.

The event allows cadets from the plebe class to learn more about each department and the 36 academic majors before making their final decision.
