Why should you accept the role of adviser?

Advising is a unique opportunity to:

  • Bond with students outside the classroom

  • Make a difference in the lives of students

  • Keep abreast of campus events

  • Aid in building community

  • Receive student appreciation

Overall, advising provides students the opportunity to get to know faculty and staff as "real" people and often leads to long term mentoring experiences.
