Every student in the College is assigned to a College Adviser, a full-time professional within the Office of the Dean of Students in the College. They are generalists, prepared to advise students across the spectrum of academic interests.
For most students, College advisers will be their primary source of curricular and academic guidance, regardless of major. The most effective advising relationships are those in which adviser and advisee know each other well, so students should be prepared to speak candidly about their goals and challenges.
In many cases, students are able to stay with the same adviser for the duration of their undergraduate careers. Other students may request an adviser change to find a College Adviser who better complements his or her personality.
