Associate Advising


As upperclass mentors, associate advisors assume a leadership role and offer academic advice to freshmen for a one-year commitment in partnership with freshman advisors. Associate advisors also support freshmen living in their residence by providing academic programming and resources.

Here you will find key training information and advice for current associate advisors as well as information on how to become an associate advisor next year.
