Do Not Be Late
Schedule appointments early in the semester and arrive on time. It is important that you have regular contact with your advisor throughout each semester.
Write down your questions and concerns and bring that list with you to your appointment. Print and bring your advisement report, which will assist you and your advisor in any discussions about degree requirements, progress, and selection of courses.
Expand Your Experiences
Your advisor may also assist you with nonacademic matters (e.g., extracurricular activities, living on campus, etc.). Expect advisors to give you referrals; they are your link to resources across campus designed to facilitate your success.
As an advisee, you have clear responsibilities in the advising partnership. In order to be successful, you must follow through with referrals or plans of action recommended during advising sessions. Understand that you are ultimately responsible for your education and decision-making.
Campus Activities, an office within St. John’s University’s Division of Student Affairs, provides University-wide programs that promote school spirit and pride. Students who become involved in at least one campus activity report higher overall satisfaction with their collegiate experience and stronger organizational, communication, and leadership skills.
