You may not know what you want to study (most of our new students don’t, either), or you may have had your dream career planned since kindergarten. Either way, we’ve got a plan to help you succeed.
While your General Business Core courses will play a key role in your major selection, an equally important element is your partnership with your academic adviser. During your first week on campus, we’ll pair you with a faculty adviser who can answer your questions and offer guidance. Once you declare your major by the end of your sophomore year, you’ll be matched with a new faculty adviser within your academic program to help you as you begin your more focused, specialized studies.
