Drop-In Advising Appointments

IMPORTANT: Drop-in advising meetings are generally 15 minutes maximum, and are first-come, first-served.  Drop-ins are appropriate for discussing one quick question, but not for indepth planning.  If you are bringing any written materials you would like to be reviewed you must bring them printed out on paper, not on a laptop or flash drive.  If you want materials reviewed and you do not bring them in printed form you may be asked to schedule an appointment at another time. 

Rachel Tolen's usual Drop-in hours (subject to change):

Drop-in appointments are not being held at this time.  If you would like to meet, please schedule an appointment.

Please check the calendar on Starnet before coming to Drop-In Advising to make sure they are being held on the day you plan to come.
