The success of our students is the number one priority in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences. Meeting regularly with your advisor will enable you to make good academic choices, identify sources of support, and ultimately, help ensure your success.
If you are an undergraduate student who has declared a major in one of our departments, you are assigned a faculty member or peer mentor from your department as your advisor.
