Oakes Advising

Alert: Due to staffing changes, Oakes Advising will not have drop-in on Friday, March 23 from 10AM - 12PM. At this time, some advising appointments during Finals Week (March 19-23) will be integrated into our drop-in schedule to make sure we are able to see as many students as possible. We ask for your patience during this transition.
