What is orientation advising? The first academic advising experience for new college students occurs during orientation. Due to time constraints, this session usually consists of a brief interaction with a trained New Student Advisor for initial advisement and course selection. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned faculty advisor for their academic major early in their first semester for an individualized advising appointment.
