    There are job fairs and careers services advisors like everywhere, but the professors in my particular major were the key in preparing me for the multiple professional jobs I've had since graduating. They stressed that we developed outstanding writing, researching abilities and critical reading and evaluation skills, which are applicable to a wide variety of fields. As a result, now only 9 years from undergrad, my wife and I have a 6 figure household income with undergraduate degrees only in history. The professors and courses themselves were the best preparation for the world hands down. Career services was useless and I never attended a job fair. The professors themselves have acted as our references for years because we also forged lifelong friendships with several of them.

    The students seemingly are like students everywhere. A large segment of them like to party and do their work last minute/barely. A smaller subset are studious and work hard. No surprise the party students in my major never went anywhere but the ones who attempted to get something out of their degree, even though it was "only history" have nice careers now.

    Home computers did not exist; they had a state of the art computer lab for the time. Dorms were appropriately dreary, cafeterias should have been shut down. All is much better now!

    we didn't have computers - we had A single IBM 360 mainframe and punch cards. The place to leave your punch card stacks was the basement of the engineering building. The dorms were Spartan and resembled a prison. The cafeteria was nothing I remember.
