CLASS Academic Advising

The CLASS Academic Advising Office empowers students to explore academic interests and opportunities; address academic challenges; and develop educational plans consistent with academic, personal, and professional goals. We subscribe to the principle that academic advisors work to strengthen the importance, dignity, potential and unique nature of everyone served within the academic setting. The work of advisors is guided by the beliefs that:

  • advising is teaching;
  • students can be successful because of their individual goals and efforts;
  • students have a desire to learn;
  • learning needs vary per individual skills, goals and experiences;
  • students hold their own beliefs and opinions;
  • students are active participants in the advising process.

A residential college is not just a place to live, but a community of engaged students with invitations to academic and co-curricular experiences which will set you apart from other degree holders in the job market.  Together, students will learn how to improve the human condition and sustain a free society through the tenets of public-spiritedness, cultural proficiency, and scholarly engagement.
