Our advisors work in collaboration with students to help them maximize their individual potential by providing information, sharing valuable academic tools, and recommending available resources that empower students to make informed decisions about creating an academic plan that works best for them. At SoPA, we never want you to feel that you must do this by yourself. We want you to succeed. We are here to help whether you need assistance with class scheduling, declaring a major or minor, keeping track of your academic progress or need guidance on how to juggle school and life…. We’ve got your back.”
