Sign up for the New Student Orientation (NSO) which begins the week of June 7, and learn more about what you need to do before the Fall 2021 semester. If you are an incoming Journalism major, you will be contacted by your advisor the week before your orientation to arrange an academic advising appointment to select fall classes. Beth Wallace and John Ciampa are the Journalism Department's advisors, though John will be the primary advisor helping students over the summer. Feel free to reach out to him if you have any questions.
