Where is your advisor and what is she doing?
This week, I am only in the office on Wednesday and Thursday, but I will be available, via e-mail, on Tuesday. Even though I am not here on Tuesday, I will be busy responding to e-mails, reading admission files and making schedules for new frosh; reviewing my advisees' grades and Fall schedules and contacting all of you.
I will not be in the office and wholly unavailable on Friday. 100% MIA.
Based on your academic performance, the number of credits that you have, and your stated confidence in your academic plan, I will either declare you into your major or we will remain together for another semester or a year. If you are declared, you will have a new advisor in your major department whom you will go to for questions about your academic plan and to receive your AVN every semester. If you need me, I am an e-mail away. You do not have to be my advisee to see me or ask me questions, but you do have to meet with me if you are my advisee.
I thought the following Ted Talks would be inspirational.
Welcome! My name is Rachel Moody. I post weekly announcements and messages to motivate and inspire my UAlbany advisees, and any one else who visits. Comments are welcome! While you are here, have a virtual cup of tea!
