THE NSC DEPARTMENT WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME NITA OCANSEY TO THE NSC ADVISING TEAM

My name is Nita Ocansey and I am the newest NSC Advisor! I will be working alongside your wonderful advisor, Michelle Mendoza, to continue providing resources and serving the needs of all NSC students.


A little bit about myself - In December 2013, I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutritional Sciences - Nutrition. During my undergraduate career, I held various positions and was involved in many areas/programs at the UA including: The New Start Summer Program, Fraternity & Sorority Programming, and African American Student Affairs, just to name a few. Since 2013, I had the opportunity to explore different avenues and was a part of the University of Arizona Admissions team for quite some time.


I am truly excited to be a part of an amazing program and as your advisor, I look forward to providing insight on all of the marvelous facets of the NSC program.


I will begin holding appointments in August. To schedule an appointment, please visit http://wiseadvising.arizona.edu where you may view my availability. Meetings will be by appointment only with 30 minute appointment windows.


If you have a quick question, please email your inquiry to nscadvising@email.arizona.edu. Michelle and I will both be checking this inbox, in order to answer your questions effectively and quickly.


I wish you all a great rest of your summer as well as a successful semester!

Bear Down Wildcats!
