Undergraduate students will meet with their Academic Advisor each semester to prepare
for the next semester’s courses and create an academic plan. Be prepared for your appointment so that all of your questions can be answered and
your meeting will go efficiently.
Our advisor is also a great resource for students who are considering study abroad
programs or want to apply for scholarships. Your advisor will be able to help you
integrate these options into your academic career so that they become a valuable part
of your university experience.
We want our students to succeed and your advisor can help you with your college career
planning. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to make appropriate academic
choices and take advantage of all the opportunities and resources LSON have to offer.
