L&S Newsletters

April 9, 2019

Every Fall and Spring semester, L&S Advising sends newsletters to undergraduates at the beginning and middle of the term. These newsletters will give you the deadline schedule for the semester (which you can import into your bCal), highlight upcoming events, and deliver critical announcements like policy changes. Checking out each issue will make sure you have the latest information and help you navigate advising.
