Advising Center

The College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Advising Center

The College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences welcomes all FAHSS students to visit the Advising Center on the third Floor of O’Leary Library. The primary purpose of the the Center is to provide a centralized location for the advising of all Undeclared Liberal Arts and Bachelor of Liberal Arts majors as well as other students from FAHSS. The Center is staffed with dedicated, trained faculty advisors and a professional advisor. The FAHSS Advising Center is not intended to replace department-based faculty advising, but serves as an additional resource for any student in the college, particularly those who are considering changing majors and have questions about other programs.

Please stop by any time. To make an appointment with an Advisor, contact the Center Administrator, Patricia Vaillancourt at X45270 or
