Get ready for advising week!

Advising week is getting closer and I think it is important to prepare yourself for it!

Here is my checklist of things you should do:

1. Know your advisor’s name and make sure you set up an appointment with them.

2. Know your major requirements:

For Undergraduates visit* http://www.fontbonne.edu/academics/undergraduate/

For Graduates visit*  http://www.fontbonne.edu/academics/graduate/

Click on your major and then click on course requirements, print them and highlight the ones you have already taken; then take a look at what is missing.

Still undecided? No worries! Just browse through the majors and read the descriptions, maybe there are some that spark your interest and others that you definitely would never pursue, have fun!

*Considering a minor? A certificate? Visit the links and scroll down, click on the program that interests you and read to find out if you want to pursue it!

3. Look at the course schedule and find the courses you want to take next semester, make a tentative schedule taking into consideration if you are working, commuting or if you don’t want to take 8am classes! (No one ever does!)

Find the course schedule here:

4. Write down any questions you have for your advisor! Maybe you want to change your major, or you want more information about adding a minor. Any question you have is valid, so write it down and take it to your appointment.

Advising Week

This past week was Advising Week. During this time, students meet with academic advisors to set up their upcoming semester class schedule. In addition, you are able to talk with your advisor about the current semester and your concerns about your academic standings. The advisors are able to help their students keep on track. For my visit, I set up my spring 2014 class schedule and added Marketing as a minor. Before choosing to add a minor, I had approached my advisor earlier this semester about adding a minor that would fit with my fashion merchandising degree. She was able to help decide which minor would benefit my needs as a student. She was with me every step of the process. In addition, I was able to reflect on my current concerns about which classes I need to focus on as well as how I could grow more as a student. She was very helpful with my academic needs and my concerns. My advisor as well as other faculty members at Fontbonne are eager to help the students exceed in academics and prepare them for their future after college. This is what sets Fontbonne apart from other schools. Each student has a strong support system through their journey at Fontbonne.
