Years as an academic advisor:
Why did you choose to be an academic advisor?
I enjoy working with and helping the students find their path.
What do you wish students knew about academic advisors?
I wish they knew how much we want to help them find their success.
What is one of your favorite parts of your role as an advisor?
During course request the first question I ask is, "What's your favorite class." Most students are prepared to talk about what they like.
What is one piece of advice you would offer to a brand new advisor?
We need to celebrate our students successes and failures. Failures and setbacks are where our students learn the most.
