--Important this Week!--

Honors Advisement

Honors Advisement has begun! Advising is mandatory and ensures that you are staying on track in the Honors curriculum. Current Honors freshmen (rising sophomores) will be advised by Stacey Ready or Kaycee Everidge; current sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be advised by Paula Mathis or Kaycee Everidge. Be on the lookout for specific information from your advisors and for details on our NEW PROCESS for scheduling appointments. Note: While Honors advisement is mandatory, it is not a substitute for advisement in your major department(s). We look forward to seeing and assisting you!
