    Welcome Back! We are so happy to have you back on campus and are excited for the 2013-2014 academic year to start. We hope you are just as excited for the new opportunities that await you this year. Advisors are here to help you with your transition, whether that transition is from high school to college, another college or university to Seattle University, or just making that transition back into school from a great summer break. We hope to see you at least once during the fall quarter to discuss your winter quarter classes, but also hope you will come see us if you have any other questions or to let us know how the quarter is going! During the first week of classes advisors will hold walk-in hours if you have concerns about your current schedule, would like to discuss dropping or adding a course, or have an issue that can't wait. We also have limited appointments during the first week of classes for issues that may take a little longer.  You can schedule appointments by stopping by Pigott 318 or calling the front desk at 206-296-5700.  Below you will find some important information regarding walk-in hours during fall drop/add period, important dates throughout the quarter and how you can get in touch with the advisors.  Make sure you look through all the information and keep it for reference!  Welcome back again and we all look forward to working with you!
