Advising for New and Returning Students
Dear Students,

Welcome to academic year 2007-2008! Here you will find some information about advising assignments.

New students: You can find your advisor assignment posted on the bulletin board outside the office of the Administrative Assistant to the Faculty, Jennifer Shaw. It's on the first floor of Worcester Hall, first door on your right when you enter from the exterior or Davis.

Returning students' reassignments:
If you were Matt Myer Boulton's advisee, you are now Bob Pazmiño's advisee
If you were Sharon Taylor's advisee, you are now Carole Fontaine's advisee
If you were Sze-kar Wan's advisee, you are now Nimi Wariboko's advisee
If Mark Burrows is your advisor, Bill Herzog will be your advisor during Prof. Burrows' sabbatical this year

Returning students who do not know who their advisor is: Please contact Jennifer Shaw at or x228, and she will let you know. Jennifer can also let you know how to change advisors if you so desire.

May this year be rich with blessings, grace, and learning.
