Learn More about Advisement

“The Advisement Center was a welcoming and comfortable environment … My trip to the Advisement Center was very beneficial. I was able to get the guidance I needed to make informed decisions about my academic future. I left feeling confident and prepared for the upcoming semester.”

“Coming to the advisement center has really helped me out because coming in as a freshman, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and just coming to the advisement center, they really helped me get accumulated with college, figure out how everything works, and made sure I was not confused on any step of the process.” 

​ "Coming to the Advisement Center helped open me up to a lot more classes that I didn't think I would be interested in and is pushing me towards my career.” 

“It has helped me see other outlooks on my career path of what I want to do in the future and what I can do with my major. In the end, I have the final say, but at least I get to hear what other people have to say.”
