ABOUT HONORS COLLEGE ADVISORS

The Judy Genshaft Honors College offers students an extraordinary undergraduate experience through thought-provoking coursework, engaging activities, and academic advising that meets students where they are and guides them through rewarding experiences that result in a student's ability to tell a story about who they are and what they have to offer future employers.

HONORS ADVISORS:

  • Build relationships with students and each other
  • Problem solve and partner with students to plan for their futures
  • Empower students to make the decisions that are right for them
  • Value continuous learning and having fun!

Our values show up in the way we work together, interact with students, and offer support to our colleagues within the College and around campus.

WHAT TO EXPECT

WARMTH & OPENNESS
We like students and want to get to know you. We care about your success.

QUESTIONS
We are here to address your questions and help you approach problems from new angles. We may even respond with questions of our own! Questions open doors to new ways of thinking and offer new possibilities.

PERSONALIZED PLANS
Each student brings a unique set of goals, interests, and experiences to their academic journey. We can help you pull all of those things together into a personalized plan that is less about checking off boxes and more about creating a meaningful set of experiences that connect and build on each other to help you achieve goals and prepare for your future.

WHAT'S EXPECTED OF OUR STUDENTS

CHECK-IN WITH US
We want to know how you're doing so we can celebrate the good and work through the challenges. Come see us!

RESPECT OUR TIME
We make ourselves available during 30-minute appointments, 5-minute Drop-in visits, via email, phone, and Teams. In addition to advising students, we often carry a few other responsibilities. Please respect our time by making an appointment when you have a list of things to discuss or by using the Drop-in time to provide a quick update or ask a quick question.

COME PREPARED
Since your path through college is your own, we rely on you to come prepared to each meeting with some ideas, questions, suggestions, and thoughtful contributions on what you want to accomplish.
