First-Year Advising

Academic advising in the first year supports students in their transition to college academics. Advisers assist students in identifying courses that align with their interests and goals, in shaping a coherent course of study, in planning for academic co-curricular opportunities like research, study abroad, public service, and internships, in forming connections with faculty and other members of the academic community, and in utilizing campus resources.

First-year students have an assigned advising network comprising an academic adviser, a Proctor, a Peer Advising Fellow, and a Resident Dean of First-Year Students. In addition, students are encouraged to augment their network by taking advantage of advising resources in academic departments and campus offices.
