Walk-In Advising -- Not Available for Spring 2022

Regular walk-in advising is held on Wednesdays.  Due to previously scheduled advising appointments and other administrative commitments, advisors cannot accommodate walk-ins outside of these days.  The best way to reach an advisor without an appointment is by emailing her directly.
