Academic Advising offers a variety of events throughout the year, including workshops and drop-in appointments. These events are intended for students planning programs in the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences. Check back regularly to see new, upcoming events.

Drop-in appointments

Advising at the Learning Commons

Have a quick question for an academic adviser but you don't think it warrants a full advising appointment? All students are welcome to visit us at our drop-in times. 

When: Resuming late September

  • Mondays, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm*
  • Wednesdays, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
  • Thursdays, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
  • Fridays, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Where: The McPherson Library Learning Commons, room 135h.

How to sign up: There will be a sign-up sheet on the office door where you can add your name. When it is your turn, the adviser will invite you into the office, so be sure to stay nearby.

*This drop-in time coincides with Career Services's career educator drop-in sessions, located next door in room 135g. If you're looking for help from both a career educator and an academic adviser, this is a great opportunity to attend a 2-for-1 drop in. 

A Word of Advice workshop series

A series of short presentations hosted by academic advisers focused on common advising topics. Students will be able to ask questions and receive answers on the spot.
