Every student is assigned a faculty advisor after declaring a major within the Department of Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education. You will meet with your advisor each semester until graduation to help discuss your curriculum and create a plan to graduate on time while achieving all of your degree requirements.
For more information on advisement, reach out to your advisor or Susan Wielgosz.
