Academic advisors in our residential colleges provide additional support as students aim for academic excellence, become engaged on campus, and grow professionally.

In collaboration with the Department of Housing and Residential Life, Residential College Advising is a unit of the Office of Academic Enhancement, which features two professional staff academic advisors and 27 undergraduate peer mentors, known as First Year Fellows (FYFs).

The Senior Academic Advisors for the Residential Colleges triage academic concerns related to major and career exploration, advising students on developing graduation plans, and connecting students to campus resources to aid in their success.  The Advisors also support at-risk students through outreach and academic workshops.  The Senior Advisors have the knowledge of the University's academic policies as well as how to help you explore and identify a major, minor, or cognate that matches your skills, abilities, and interests.
