Advising Tools and Resources

The Advising Programs Office hosts academic fairs to help you learn about academic fields as well as coordinating and publicizing concentration events especially those for first-year students during Advising Fortnight. We also provide trainings for new and experienced advisers throughout the year. There are workshops, resources, and communications specifically provided for First-year Advisers and Sophomore Advisers. Current First-year Advisers and Sophomore Advisers have access to these resources on dedicated sharesites. If you are not a current First-year Adviser, and would like to be one, please email us.
