Meeting with an Advisor

Academic advising is a partnership between you and your academic advisor. It is an ongoing conversation that goes beyond course selection. It encompasses major and career selection, personal pursuits and academic goals. Our goal is to assist you as you explore the LBC curriculum, experience college life, and prepare for life after college.

Your advisor expects that you:

  • Come prepared: have questions written down, keep documents together, and review your objectives
  • Keep your contact information updated
  • Are courteous; cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you can’t make it, so another student can have the time slot
  • Make an appointment at least once a year
  • Are open to suggestions that are based on your interests, strengths and goals

You can expect your advisor to:

  • Listen to you and hear your goals
  • Understand the LBC curriculum and university policies
  • Refer you to experts in the field or resources across campus for careers, counseling, education abroad, tutoring, extracurricular activities, etc.
  • Assist you with evaluating and re-evaluating your academic and graduation goals
  • Coach you to be competitive in your chosen field
  • Maintain confidentiality (read FERPA for students)
