Get involved in activities outside the classroom.

What should students expect in an advising appointment and how should they prepare?

Bring questions.

What do you want or need to know to be successful at PSU?

I will do my best to help you reach that goal.

Play tennis or volleyball.


Make an appointment with your academic advisor at least once every other term. You will need to reserve a time a few weeks in advance. Be sure you are on track to graduate and learn about academic opportunities you may not have considered. Students who meet regularly with advisors are more likely to graduate on time and avoid problems with course availability.

Stop by the Karl Miller Center Room 220 or call 503-725-3712 to make an appointment.
