Please note: When making an advising appointment, you MUST indicate a detailed reason for your appointment in the 'comments' section when scheduling. Advisors need to know in advance what the issue is in order to anticipate whether it will take longer than the standard 30-minute appointment in order to extend the appointment; and also so that we can have your file, and all necessary information for your appointment, ready when you log in. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the appointment and you will need to reschedule.

Advising appointments should be scheduled through Navigate. If none of the times listed in Navigate work with your schedule, please email your Advisor to schedule a meeting outside of those offerings.

Office Hours:

By appointment only.

Charlie is the newest addition to the University Scholars Family. Jeremy rescued Charlie from a shelter in April of 2021 (after Charlie had spent six years in a very abusive household). Jeremy trained Charlie during the pandemic, first to become an Emotional Support Animal (for which he needed very little training, as he can easily pick up on how people are feeling); and then continued with his training until he became a certified Service Animal. While not on the payroll, Charlie officially began "working" in the Scholars Program in Fall 2021, and very quickly became an essential member of the family.

Charlie is extremely attuned to people's emotions and LOVES coming to the University every day so he can meet new people, and see some of his favorite Scholars time and time again. Many students have set up appointments just to come in and sit with Charlie when they are feeling overwhelmed, sad, or stressed; and he is more than happy to provide some comfort...particularly for those students who are away from home for the first time. He may bark a "hello" when he first sees you (or if he hasn't met you before), but in three seconds he'll be trying to sit in your lap (he doesn't realize 80lbs is slightly above "lapdog" status). We are very happy that Charlie has joined us, not just for the joy he brings to the office, but also because this is yet another beneficial service we can provide for our students to help with their emotional wellbeing during their time in the Scholars Program.
