How is School Going?

How are you doing? How is school going so far? We are now in week 5 of the Fall term, so this is a good time to check in with yourself and gauge your progress. Are you keeping up with your readings? Are you going to all your classes? If you answered NO to these questions, you may need some help and guidance. Come and talk to an academic advisor to find out what kinds of help are available and go over your options. The earlier you reach out, the better you will do so stop into Dunning Hall to make an appointment with an academic advisor. Our door open Monday to Friday 8:30-4:30.
 
Did you know that you can also run an   Academic Advisement Report  in SOLUS to see what you have completed and still need to complete in order to meet your degree requirements.
