Our Top 3 Questions

  • Can I sit in on a class during my campus visit?

    Definitely! Just let your admissions counselor know what kind of coursework you are considering, and we’ll do our best to take you to a class in progress.


  • Who will be my academic advisor?

    Every year members of the faculty take a group of new students as their academic advisees. Students stay with their first-year advisor until they declare a major and are assigned a new advisor in their major program.

  • When do I declare a major?

    Normally, students declare a major before the end of the sophomore year, in time for advising for the following fall semester.
