Why Meet With an Advisor?    

Advisors are professionals who  guide students from new student orientation to graduation. We encourage you to get to know your advisor and to take advantage of the wide range of information and services he or she can provide. Advisors will help you  clarify your  goals, create a plan, and explore resources to help you reach your goals. They can also assist with problem-solving, explain policies and procedures, and refer to campus resources.
