Advisees: To get the most of our advising meetings you need to come prepared. After you schedule an appointment make sure that you write down any questions you have, review degree audit, do research on possible minors, concurrent majors, and study abroad, etc. to the extent that you can. Think about what it is you want to get out of your education experience and we can help you achieve these goals and explore new ones as well.
