It’s my goal to help you make your time at The University of Akron be the best possible experience. Please stop in to see me on a regular basis so we can keep track of your academic progress together.

In the meantime, get to know your professors and instructors; connect with other students in your classes; check out tutoring services in Bierce 68; and get involved on campus.

Use your career resources on campus early in your student career by visiting the Center for Career Management in Simmons 301 or the Counseling, Testing and Career Center in Simmons 306 and visit their websites regularly to keep up with upcoming programs, speakers, career fairs and other opportunities.

I hope to talk to you soon!
