  • make connections between personal interests, life goals, and academic opportunities
  • think critically and question common assumptions about majors and careers
  • find educational opportunities such as study abroad programs, research assistantships, leadership activities, and internships

All students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor often to ensure they are on track with their degree requirements. Your advisor will help you reach your goals!
