Here are some helpful resources for new and current students:
The Office of Academic Advising is in the midst of a busy spring semester! We have offered a variety of programs for our new students, and are looking forward to providing even more academic opportunities for our students throughout the rest of the semester. Whether a student is brand new to Wheelock, unsure of what major to pursue, or just wants to check in with an advisor about degree progress, our office is here to help!
Take a look at some of the advising programs and meetings that students can take advantage of this semester:
Wildcats Get R.E.A.L. About Majors: This month-long program is comprised of three different events -- a self reflection workshop, a major exploration conference, and a major exploration fair. The purpose of this comprehensive program is to help students begin or continue to explore Wheelock's academic opportunities. Furthermore, this program is designed to help students further explore their skills, values, and interests, while they learn about resources that can enhance their academic and co-curricular paths.
Transition to Faculty Advisor Meetings: These are one-on-one meetings during which sophomore and some transfer students meet with their professional advisor to discuss their transition to a faculty advisor. A student's faculty advisor is a faculty member who teaches in (one) of the student's declared major(s). The faculty advisor offers program-specific guidance, and also acts as an academic support and resource.
Course Advising and Registration: Advisors will meet with all first year students throughout March and the beginning of April to discuss Fall 2016 courses. First year students are required to meet with their Student Advisor and Professional Advisor to register for fall courses. Students will receive more information about course registration through their Wheelock email.
First Year Finale: This event takes place at the end of a student's first year and is a celebration for students completing their first year at Wheelock. Staff and students recognize first year students' accomplishments and it is a special way to end the year.
Current students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor with any questions regarding these programs and meetings.
