Advisers

All students are assigned an official adviser in the department. This information is visible on lionpath if you aren’t certain who your adviser is.  Many faculty also enjoy speaking informally with students about their career goals and aspirations.  Take advantage of these opportunities.  Your professors have a wealth of information to share with students getting started in the field.

Cindy Adams, PhD works with many Nutritional Science students,  all incoming transfer students, those transitioning to University Park from other campuses and those wishing to learn more about the nutrition major or minor.  In addition several Nutritional Science Teaching Professors have assigned advisees.
