It's a Wrap . . .

CONGRATULATIONS - by now, you've finished with your finals and the academic year!

Enjoy your summer fully . . . and here are a couple of (small) reminders to carry you through August:

  • check SPIRE to make sure your contact information (home and cell phone numbers, etc) is correct and current (campus profiles>student contact information)
  • if you're hoping to gain access into specific courses, check SPIRE regularly, and if you're making changes, use SWAP, so you don't risk losing a seat in a class
  • read (and respond, if requested) to UMass email - remember, this is the University's official means of communication with you!  
  • follow the Blog over the summer - some posts will be directed to incoming students, but you can keep in touch with what's going on at UMass!
One more general reminder: as you work, study, and/or travel over the summer, remember to keep your radar tuned to pick up on any possible internships, jobs, or opportunities to do an informational interview about a career you may or may not have considered.  In short, NETWORK!  

Undergraduate Advising will remain open throughout the summer, although during New Student Orientation days, we will have very limited staff available.  Have a question or want to come in to talk with an advisor?  Call 5-2191 to set up a time.  You can also check out our website at
