Howdy from Your Academic Advisors!
IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ: As many of you know, Katie Marek will be out on maternity leave beginning the end of April. Debbie Perez, the HORT graduate advisor, will be assisting with advising questions in Katie’s absence and Marissa Faris, the experiential learning coordinator, will be assisting with internship/job related questions. We are being proactive to assist with many of your graduation, advising and pre-registration questions prior to Katie’s maternity leave. Please read below for timely updates that may pertain to you.
Are you planning to Graduate in August 2013, December 2013, or May 2014? If so, stop by HFSB 205 and put your name on the list to ensure we know your intended plans. This will allow Katie and Debbie to make sure your file is up to date. If you have previously indicated your plans, please stop by at your earliest convenience to ensure we have one comprehensive list.
