Alex's Tip of the Week: Attend Some Info Sessions!!!

Hi Everyone, hope you're having a great start to your semester! My name is Alex and I'm a Peer Advisor with Undergraduate Advising, ready for anything from assisting you with the course selection process, to answering questions about academic requirements, to promoting major exploration and more!

First, let me start by asking you a few questions: Are you considering declaring a major, adding another major/minor, or changing your current major? Do you find yourself wondering about which classes to take, or how to apply to certain majors on campus?

One of the best ways to get information, ask questions, and learn about all of the exciting programs that UMass has to offer is through attending an Information Session!

Knowledge is power, and attending an information session can give you the confidence you need to explore your areas of interest and start making informed decisions regarding your educational future. Attending an info session allows you to check out whether or not various departments on campus are a great fit for you, and ask any questions you have about their specific programs. Through attending an information session you might receive 
  • an overview of the department.
  • the requirements for that major.
  • how to apply and what the next steps are for you.
Info sessions are also awesome ways to meet undergraduate program directors, advisors, and other students--all of whom can offer their unique perspectives and experiences within the department. You never know, this could be a pivotal moment of decision-making in your college experience. Hit the ground running this semester and attend an information session!

Please continue to check the Undergraduate Advising Blog for the most up-to-date information regarding when/where Info Sessions are being held on campus.
