Advising

Economics Advising

As of January 4, 2017, the Economics Department has moved to a new location. Click here for details about our office location.

Students may schedule appointments with Economics advisors by clicking on the "Make an Advising Appointment" button to the left.  It is highly recommended that students enter a brief description or list specific questions they have in the "Tell us more!" box when making an appointment. 

Drop-in advising is available only at Motivation Mondays! or FAQ Fridays, which occur most weeks when class is in session.  

Motivation Mondays take place in Thompson Hall café outside the SBS Advising Resource Center (beginning March 20, 2017) in an informal, drop-in format. No advance registration is required. An advisor will be stationed at a table in the café area to answer student questions and provide motivation and encouragement to students who need it...especially those who hate Mondays.

FAQ Fridays are held in Crotty Hall at 412 North Pleasant Street, which is the home of the Economics department, and advance registration is recommended.  For locations and times of FAQ Fridays, click the "Make an Advising Appointment" button and look under Event Registration. Registration is not mandatory, but advance registration with notes in the "Tell us more!" box will help the advisor prepare for your visit.

The Economics Department Undergraduate Advising Blog includes advising tips, internship opportunities, workshops, events, career development and more.
