Advising Right Now: Development & Training Meetings
The Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming holds Advisor Development Meetings throughout the academic year. The goal of these sessions is to develop a highly knowledgeable and invested community of freshman advisors. These meetings are great opportunities to get together with fellow advisors, to learn more about campus resources, and to share information and insights with each other.

The annual Advisor Orientation was held on Monday, August 29, for all freshman advisors. Faculty from the Science Core, HASS, Communication, and Physical Education requirements presented the various options for meeting their parts of the General Institute Requirements.
