Advising Matters

ADVISING MATTERS & So do you!

One of the goals of the Wilson Advising Center is to coordinate campus-wide services to support quality academic advising for faculty and students. This semester we will present ADVISING MATTERS during the week of March 10-14 to highlight the importance of advising as a profession and its role in helping students reach their academic goals.   

 

Monday, March 10 from 11am-2pm, we will kick off this campaign with an Open House Fun Day at the Wilson Advising Center.  Both students and faculty are encouraged to stop by to meet our staff, tour the center and share in some advising fun.  Grab a friend and stop by for some healthy competition with one of the following games.  Refreshments provided. 

  • Advising:  On Course 11am-12pm
  • Advising Jeopardy 12pm-1pm
  • Advising Bingo 1pm-2pm

 

Tuesday, March 11 from 11am-12pm, faculty and students are welcome to stop by the Wilson Advising Center for Advising Trivia and a chance to spin the Wheel of Fortune.  You just might win a prize! 

 

Students are encouraged to schedule timely advising appointments to visit with their advisor.  The Wilson Advising Center will raffle an A-State Basket filled with prizes for those who visit with their advisor by March 21.  Students who wish to enter the  drawing can pick up their advising check-off from the Wilson Advising Center  beginning February 24.  Forms are due back in the Advising Center by 5pm March 21.    Don’t miss out on your chance to win!

 

Wednesday, March 12 from 9am-1pm, the Wilson Advising Center will host Undergraduate Faculty Advisor Training in preparation for the 2014 summer and fall registration periods.  We asked for your input and planned the training accordingly.  The training will be held in the Wilson Advising Center and will cover:  Academic Policies, General Education Curriculum & Remedial Courses, Transcripts, On-line Excel Check sheets, Graduation Requirements,  and other relevant advising information.   We hope you will take advantage of this professional development opportunity.

Thursday, March 13 from 10am-11am , the Wilson Advising Center will present-Know Your Role:  An Advisee Information Session for students, at the Wilson Advising Center.  This session is to help students understand their role in the advising relationship and the advising connection to career preparation and more.

 

Each activity has been carefully planned with you in mind.  We look forward to serving you. Campus registration dates are posted below.
