Undergraduate Advising

The transition from home to college can be intimidating. The Newhouse Undergraduate Advising Office is here to help you navigate this new space while making sure that you’re achieving your academic goals.

When you come to the Newhouse School, you will have an academic adviser in the advising office to help you work through your first semester registration and get you started on your path to a career in communications.

Drop-in Waiting Room

In addition to your academic adviser, you’ll also get a peer adviser, a Newhouse student who’s a little ahead of you and knows the ropes. They can answer your questions and understand your experience, because they just went through it all themselves.

Then you’ve got your faculty adviser who can guide you in course choices, answer questions about the majors available to you, and advise you on the communications industry from a more seasoned perspective.
