As an advisor to first and second year students, academic advisor Julie Carney-Jones understands the importance of working closely with each student to ensure a successful academic experience. “Transitioning into college can be overwhelming for students and we are here to support them.” She says. “We focus on study skills, time management, and career goals. Whenever they need to talk, we are here.” The Academic Advising Center strives to foster intellectual and personal development so students can be successful in their academics and throughout their lives. Whether it is a question about a course of study, or a personal issue they need to resolve, it is important for students to have someone to talk to.
