Who is my first-year advisor?

That’s a good question! Your first-year advisor is determined by the section of CORE 100 in which you’re enrolled.  Your advisor will also work closely with your professor in that course to ensure a seamless transition to college life and academic success.

Check below to see which advisor is associated with your CORE 100 section, and then find our contact information on the left side of this page. Get in touch! We’d love to hear from you!
