Who We Are
The School of Communication Undergraduate advising office is committed to delivering outstanding advising services to our students by utilizing the theory and practice of Appreciative Advising. Appreciative Advising is an academic advising philosophy which calls advisors to celebrate students’ strengths as they help advisees achieve their life and academic goals. It is a reciprocal approach where both student and advisor benefit and learn. Appreciative Advisors build relationships with students to keep them engaged in exploring multiple avenues for meeting their needs. We are truly invested in partnering with students to achieve academic and personal success.

SOC Undergraduate Academic Advisors work with students to create a challenging academic program to launch their careers. Students are required to meet with their Academic Advisor at least once each semester to plan their course schedule for the next semester. However, students are encouraged to meet with their Academic Advisors over the academic year to discuss education plans, review the degree audit report (DARS), evaluate academic progress and requirements, and discuss other education/career opportunities.
