We can help you select courses and plan ahead for graduate school, enroll in study abroad, or find a research mentor. Maybe you'd like to find out how to get involved in other areas related to your interests - like hiking with the UVM Outing Club or joining UVM Rescue.

We're also here to help when you're facing challenges. And, as you advance in your program, we'll connect you with a faculty advisor for career guidance.
