This event is incredible if you are looking for a chance to get to find out all about your intended major or if you just wanted to learn about potential majors. Faculty from ALL of our majors are available to answer in-depth questions. Almost all of the advisors in ASC will be there too.

leads a discussion:
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
As students at UAlbany, we are often asked to do things that are uncomfortable, whether it is working in groups, living with strangers, seeking help, dealing with criticism of our work in a way that we may have never experienced. Let us talk about how we are forced to get out of our comfort zone and what we do about it.
I have no healing words. This picture spoke to me. This Summer I took a teen to the 9/11 exhibit at the NYS Museum and she told me that she was one year old when we were attacked. It was powerful watching her take in the tribute, especially the artifacts and pictures of those who were killed. You, reading this, have a chance to make a different on this earth. No act of service, of kindness is too small. I believe that I advise change makers and I believe in your ability to make a positive difference - whomever you are. RSM
The University Counseling Center is a wonderful resource if you need help working through your grief.
