Drop-in advising hours Monday, 5/11/15

A faculty advisor will be available on campus on Monday, May 11 for drop in advising in MH 438A between 10-11:15 and 12:45-2:00.  These additional drop-in hours will take place in the Dean's Conference Room so shared questions can be discussed together.   Please come prepared to discuss your questions in small groups. 

Faculty Advising is winding down for the semester and the hours that are posted on the blog are the only remaining advising hours available for this spring.   Advising questions will be answered over the summer, but the email question response time will be significantly slower and on-campus availability will be greatly reduced.   

All declared Health Science undergraduate students are expected to attend the Fall Welcome Assembly being planned for the afternoon of Wednesday, August 19th where the department leadership will provide an opportunity to discuss the program, courses, student opportunities, and advising questions and processes.

Spring 2015 Fieldwork Expo

If you are planning to enroll in HS 166A and HS 166B in the fall, then you need to attend the Health Science Fieldwork Expo on Friday 5/8 from 10:30-11:30AM in MH324.  Representatives from potential internship sites will be present. You must apply to and be accepted to internships over the summer in order to start your 200 hours of fieldwork the first week of the fall semester and this is your best way to connect with folks.  This is a fantastic resource for you to learn from the experiences of your peers and identify where you'd like to pursue for your internship.  You'll also meet the faculty members who will support you in this adventure.
