Academic Advising For You and Me
by KEN WINDER
Your academic advisors can do more for you than just be an office that you never visit. They can help you add or drop a course, withdraw from a course, and help you with any problems you may have with Bear Tracks and enrollment. They also can steer you in the right direction for courses that you may want to take in the future, what possible career choices you can pursue with your degree, and how to get there. They also can help with the changing of a minor or major, and the changing of your program!
There has been some new staff hired and some roles have been shifted. Therefore, I would like to introduce you to our new academic advisors and advising system!
Alexis Anderson: Supervisor, Student Academic Services: Learning, Advising, and Beyond:
Office: Founder’s Hall 2-29
Maureen Horbay: Academic Advisor:
Office: Founder’s Hall 2-12
Kyla Sawden: Academic Advisor:
Office: Founder’s Hall 2-08
To book an appointment with your academic advisor, feel free to drop by their office, send them an email, or book an appointment online on the Augustana website. Their drop in hours are Tuesday to Friday: 9:00 AM – Noon and 1:00 – 3:00 PM.
There will also be a student feedback session in the Hachborn Common Room, Lower Level of Founder’s Hall on November 25th from 12-1 PM. This is where students can give feedback about the Learning, Advising, and Beyond office and the new academic advising system!
