Advisors are here to help students adjust to the demands of college student life by assisting them with
academics, stress, and problems, as well as some career and educational planning. All advising is
voluntary, by appointment, easily arranged and confidential.
Academic Advising – Advisors provide guidance to deal with academic challenges. Students can gather information here on how to become a more effective learner.
Stress and Problem-Solving – The pressure of school or life can affect a student’s abilities to cope with
their program. When this takes place, advisors can provide short-term support to help develop coping
strategies, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. Community referrals may be made. *Note: Not
treatment/therapy/counseling for diagnosed mental illness (e.g. depression, anxiety, bipolar, etc)
Career Planning – Through exploration of options (workshops and seminars), advisors assist students
with career decision-making and skills.
