In order to maintain the safest and most comfortable meeting for both student and advisor as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, please email the advisor you wish to meet with to schedule an appointment. Some meetings will be via Zoom while others will be in person depending on what you schedule with the advisor.
