Academic Advisors & Building Connections Mentors

Academic Advising

Academic advisors are the primary contact for all academic and class schedule questions. FYE students meet with this person at least once each semester to ensure they are on a successful path. Academic advisors help students consider career and educational goals, direct them to the appropriate resources on campus, and assist with any questions they have regarding university policy.

Building Connections Mentors

Building Connection Mentors are faculty or staff members devoted to helping students achieve success. FYE students will meet with their mentor early in the fall to discuss their transition to college and learn more about the campus community. Mentors will make campus resource referrals as well as follow up with their mentees on a regular basis to share information and support their academic success.
