Advising Tips

Be prepared for advisement.

Use your advisement time for more than scheduling courses.

  • Ask questions about how your major courses may apply to your future and how to get involved in extracurricular opportunities related to your major (internships, campus organizations, etc).
  • Get to know your advisor. Use your advisor as a resource and develop a relationship with them.

Go see your advisor more than just at advisement time.

  • If they know you as a person, the advisors will know ahead of time what type of student activities, internships, etc are best for you.
  • Be sure to create a strong relationship with your advisor

Do not be afraid of your advisor!!

  • Ask about the advisor’s family and their interests
  • You may be surprised to find how much you have in common with him/her
