Maybe this is a stupid question, but when I think career fair, I think of walking around to different "booths" selling yourself to potential employers. I'm not sure if this is that same sort of thing, but I certainly want to be prepared for whatever this involves. With this just being an admitted students day, I don't know what to expect with this "career fair".
They bring in some alums who talk about what they do, then they set them loose in the halls for you to corner and interrogate/question. They gave way too much time for it last year. It's just so you can hear from alums, and ask them questions you might want answers for about jobs or something. If you have no questions, you should just check out town. I skipped out on something that sounded like a total waste of time.
Edit: I found your itinerary. I am pretty sure I skipped all that "Breakout" stuff. You will figure out by lunch that they allow for an ample amount of time, and you can decide whether or not you are OK with it.
