First Year Advising

First-Year Advisers support students in their transition from high school to college.  Faculty members from all the disciplines serve as First-Year Advisers and help students understand the value of the liberal arts curriculum.

Students meet with their First-Year Adviser during Spring Orientation and select courses for the fall semester. During August Orientation, First-Year Advisers meet with students to review fall schedules, make any needed changes, answer any last minute questions, and establish their plan for fall semester communication.  First-Year Advisers guide students through their first semester and assist students in declaring their majors early in the second semester.
