Other advising resources

Advising can also involve conversations about your broader academic goals and/or your career aspirations. These conversations can involve questions like “which minor should I choose?” or “what would be a good internship for me?”

All RSJ faculty are willing and able to serve as mentors and have these conversations with you. Simply seek them out and ask questions. You can read the bios of our faculty and get their contact information on our faculty and staff directory.

Visit the university’s academic central advising page for more information or contact one of the Reynolds School advisors listed above.
