Assigned advising beginning for spring semester

Advising, Counseling, Career Services is making some improvements for spring semester! We have spent the fall transitioning to having assigned advisors for students. As we focus on the best way to serve our students, we feel this will allow advisors to form a stronger connection with their assigned students.

Advisors have been assigned by programs and special groups like honors students and athletes. By assigning students this way it allows the advisor to be the “expert” on their own programs. Advisors can also focus on how their programs transfer to other universities. The advisor will be the contact person in advising for their programs and will attend academic department meetings to stay current on program information. In addition, the advisor will send out personalized emails to their students throughout the semester.

We are encouraging students to make an appointment to see their assigned advisor each semester, but will continue to see walk-in students Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Please feel free to send me any ideas or feedback as we take a giant step toward improving our services to students!
