Welcome from the Assistant Dean for Student Support and Success

Vanessa Rodriguez

Dear SoPA Students,

Spring is officially here and SoPA is focused on new beginnings and growth. Staff, faculty, and students are enjoying our new uptown offices in the Richardson building and azaleas are blooming everywhere on campus. Spring also means that it is time for you to register for classes! You will receive your time ticket to register via email and we highly encourage you to do so as soon as possible so that you score your top class choices. If you haven't already, now is also a good time to check in with your Academic Advisor to make sure you are staying on track. I hope you get a chance to enjoy this beautiful weather and perhaps even socially distant outdoor socializing!
