Things to do prior to meeting with an advisor:

*  Be as specific as possible when emailing an advisor. This will help them plan for your
  appointment and have answers to your questions.  
*  Prepare a list of questions before meeting with an advisor.  
*  If you are trying to figure out which courses to take, use "DegreeRunner," which is
  located in the academic records section of your WebRunner account. This will help
  you decide which classes you need to take in order to graduate and can be printed so
  you can bring it to an advising session. You can also use a program worksheet by
  selecting an academic calendar year.
