Midterm advising is the perfect opportunity for ENC students to get our questions answered. Our advisers want to help us, and we will only benefit by making use of the scheduled time ENC provides for us to meet with them. It is not just a matter of getting through our college career; they can also prepare us for when we head into the world outside of college.
The majority of college students end up changing their major in some form. If you are having doubts about your current major and/or minor, talk to your adviser. It would not be the first time they have dealt with students wanting to change their educational focus. Our advisers can help guide us in our decision-making process.
Some students on campus tend to find themselves overloaded with work and extracurricular activities. If you ever get concerned about your busy schedule and are worried that you will not graduate on time, talk to your adviser. They know how to create a schedule for you, including all your required classes.
If you are wondering what you want to do after college, have a conversation with your adviser. They are the experts in your area of study and are sure to have sound advice. Advisers are here to help us reach whatever goals we may have for the future, whether that involves getting into a graduate program or finding a job.
ENC provides us an opportunity to get these questions answered. So, when you get an email about scheduling a midterm advising appointment, go ahead and take advantage of it.
