student with advisor

See my advisor AGAIN? I know what I have to take.

Meeting with your advisor can be a rewarding experience.  Your academic advisor can help you plot your academic program so that there are no surprises in your senior year.  Not only that, but your advisor can serve as a sounding board for career exploration – Am I a good fit for the major and career I’m pursuing?  Will an advanced degree be required?  How might a minor enhance my preparation, or satisfy some side interest I have?  Your advisor can be someone who gets to know you better than most on campus, and as such might be best qualified to support you when it comes to recommendations needed for graduate studies, or a job you might one day apply for.  In many respects, your advisor will serve as your academic guide through college, so make the most of this important relationship.
