Advising Circles will go on as planned - some will be remote, some in-person. The Dean of First-Year students will be assigning advisors soon.
We intend to notify students about the Circles early in August. We are trying to enroll students in Circles based on their choice of topics as well as their fall learning situation - are they remote or on campus? If remote, what time zone are they in? Because this all of this keeps changing we have delayed making final decisions.
All first year advising assignments will be completed prior to first-year move in day. Students will receive information from the First Year Office about how to determine who their advisor is. Advising Circle Instructors will reach out to students with details about their first Advising Circle meetings. Advisors of students not in Circles will reach out to their advisees to set up an initial meeting either in person or virtually.
