First-Year Advisors

  • Academic Advising is a teaching and learning partnership between advisors and students designed to promote and support students as they explore opportunities. Through this partnership, Academic Advisors will challenge students to develop autonomy and build skills necessary for success as they embark on a journey of academic, personal, and professional growth.

    We believe that you will find your greatest success and satisfaction as a student if you create a solid foundation during your first year. To build this foundation and to help you transition to college, download the First Year Advising Syllabus (PDF).
