The Academic Success and Career Center will remain open during the move to online classes with limited staff in office. We will be offering our services online in support of social distancing guidelines. Career Coaching appointments and Academic Advising appointments will now be held using Zoom. With the screen sharing technology present in the video conferencing software Zoom we can review your application documents and navigate resources together in real time so that we can achieve the same level of collaboration that we could in person. You will receive an email from Handshake or your advisor with information on how to dial in or join the virtual meeting.

Program Assistant Amberlynne Umayam started working at the Academic Success and Career Center this week. Umayam works at the front desk, assisting students who visit the center with any questions they have about tutoring, academic advising or career coaching. Umayam serves as the first point of contact most people have with our office, welcoming everyone in with a warm smile.
