The Wilson Advising Center will host -Undergraduate Faculty Advisor Training- Thursday, October 9, from 11am-3pm in the Spring River Room of the Student Union.  Light refreshments will be provided.  We offer this opportunity each semester in collaboration with the Office of Admissions Records and Registration to better prepare faculty advisors for the upcoming advising and registration period.  This semester we are extending an option for colleges and departments to become more involved by providing a representative from their unit to offer a break out session just for their faculty advisors in the afternoon.
