This week was registration week for the upcoming Fall Quarter of the 2012-2013 year. Freshmen business students were required to meet with their professional advisors this quarter instead of a mandatory meeting with us (the NSMs). This meeting consisted of planning out classes for the student's next three years at Albers. This is a great opportunity to discuss future plans about studying abroad, internships for credit, or having to meet a certain number of credits. Something I would like to emphasize to the freshmen is that these plans are TENTATIVE and change often, as do your personal plans throughout the years. There were quarters in my undergraduate career that I would go in to see my professional advisor twice a quarter. You never know what will occur and how it will affect your plans, therefore, going to update this plan at least once a year is highly suggested.
Also, there is only a few weeks left in the quarter, this includes finals. It is definitely crunch time and I would like to wish the mentees good luck as they take on the last quarter of their freshmen year!
