If you have stopped by the office this week, you have an idea of how crazy things are in 134 Erickson. Therefore, to help our students, we have added a peer advising component to our office. Right now, we have four peer advisors, and they are each trained, capable, and willing to help.
Appointments with KIN advisors will be extremely scarce throughout the remainder of the semester. As a result, our peer advisors have opened up times through a website called Setmore. If you scroll over the student’s name, their schedule will pop up. If you click on their name, you can choose an open time-slot.
Our peer advisors can assist you with major/minor selection, admission requirements, resource referrals, and general advising questions. They also do a nice job of referring students to KIN advisors when appropriate. For example, specific scheduling questions should be directed toward academic advisors during walk-in hours or scheduled appointments.
Due to high demand, we are moving to a walk-in only model in April. Here is what the schedule will look like:
Starting April 3 – May 5 (end of the semester), KIN/AT Walk-ins:
M/T/Th/F from 9-11 am
M/T/W/Th from 2-4 pm
Until the end of March, we are holding walk-in times from 2pm-4pm M-W and 9am-11am on Thursday. To help your fellow students, please come prepared to your appointment. While no one can enroll in fall/spring classes at this point, every student can start planning their schedule through Schedule Builder. I recommend that all students begin this process ASAP.
If you go to the Advising portion of this website, there is a helpful “Preparing for an advising appointment” document.
For freshmen and sophomores, now is a great time to start thinking about your cognate. We recommend that students choose their cognate either near the end of the sophomore year or early in the junior campaign. The updated cognate structure appears below.
The Psychology department has added a new section of PSY320 for the summer semester. We know that many of you need the course for the Health Promotion minor, so act quickly if you are interested in taking the class over the summer!
