NDSU students initiate new advising center

North Dakota State University students have a new NDSU Advising Resource Center at the Memorial Union.

 

Center staff will help students with questions regarding general education requirements, academic policies and adding or changing majors, and will connect students with advisers within their disciplines.

 

Student body President Kevin Black and Vice President Shawn Affolter pushed for an advising center. “Shawn and I have always recognized that advising was a serious concern for our students. We proposed an advising center as a solution and talked extensively about this on our campaign,” said Black. “The idea is to make sure that the needs of students are covered. We don’t want anyone falling through the cracks. The center serves as a starting point for students looking for general advice or connecting with an adviser.”

 

Ed Deckard, professor of plant sciences, who helped organize the center said, “The intention is to improve academic success of students. We in no way want to undermine traditional academic advising, but instead be a quick stop for students with questions and to connect them with their academic advisers.”

 

The center is located in the Gunkelman Room adjacent to the Student Activities Office and the Memorial Union Coffee Shop. Walk-in visits are welcome Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 701-231-8662.
