Welcome back Nutritional Sciences students – FALL 2017

I hope everyone had a great summer and is excited about the start of a new semester.  We’ve had several changes in the Nutritional Sciences department this summer related to academic advising.  At the start of most years, students who have recently declared the major are often assigned a new academic adviser.  So, it is possible you are working with a different adviser this term.  In addition, we have a new adviser, Dr. Cindy Adams who is taking over the position formerly held by Mrs. Kelly.  You may still see Mrs. Kelly around as she is now working with the online Master’s program.  Dr. Corwin retired this summer and her advisees will be working with Dr. Gernand.  We are excited to have Dr. Adams join the advising team.

Things to do now:

  • Subscribe to the advising blog – and tell your friends to do this if they aren’t already subscribed. We post important information related to courses, academics, internships, and jobs here.
  • Locate your adviser information on lionpath and plan a time to meet.
