Each student from the time of his/her admittance is assigned a faculty advisor and mentor. When a major has been declared an advisor in the major area is assigned. The advisor must approve each semester’s course schedule. Students should consult with their advisors about their program several times a year. Mentors serve as resource persons and “friends” to students on campus with whom they can share an experience and question(s) about campus facilities, services, procedures, and resolution to problems.
