The U.S. Army and Navy, Eastman and PathGroup were among the companies talking with students in the second-floor atrium.
A sampling of colleges and universities found on the first floor included Samford, Lipscomb, Union, South College and Belmont pharmacy schools and colleges; Meharry Medical College and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee; and the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine.
In 2016, about 10 organizations attended the fair, so this year’s attendees more than tripled from a year ago.
