Pete Rex, Leah Schuh, Laurel Clarkson, and Melissa Solinger Pete, Leah, Laurel, and Melissa all serve as part of the Human Science cluster of advisors in EHE. Since joining this team I have received non-stop support from every advisor. Any question I have had big or small they are always willing to help or provide insightful guidance. In additional to advising, they all go above and beyond in the other roles they hold overseeing and managing special populations and/or programs.

Congratulations Pete, Leah, Laurel, and Melissa! 

November 2018 Outstanding Advisor of the Month

Please check out some of the awesome things our advising colleagues are doing this month. Thank you to each of you for all of your hard work!

Barry Tolchin Barry is consistently willing to take on leadership roles within the College of Engineering and always willing provide support to other advisors when they need help. In the absence of a director, Barry stepped up to lead the bi-weekly advising meetings and regularly sends out information that is helpful to the collective advisor group. He is thoughtful, attention-detailed, and hard-working. We are lucky to have him as a colleague!
Nancy Coscia With an unflagging enthusiasm, Nancy puts our students first. She never ceases to address each advisee with great warmth and thoughtful, accurate answers. As my direct supervisor, I feel completely supported and validated in my advising and in my professional development. She is a great colleague and advisor.
Liz McGinnis Liz has been great with getting items up on our undergraduate department website quickly, sometimes in just a few hours to learning new information. She has also been extremely helpful to me specifically getting a project completed and posted to our website.
Audrey Van Ostran Audrey continually goes above and beyond her duties in our office. Not only does she oversee all pre-law students but she also holds roles within ACADAOS, has a digital flagship section of survey, and a full case load of students. Additionally, she is always willing to put together email templates with important information that all our students need and makes a point to share those with everyone to help make our communication consistent and effective especially during registration times.

And the winners of the ACADAOS raffle are…. Liz McGinnis & Nancy Coscia!

October 2018 Advisor of the Month

Please check out some of the awesome things our advising colleagues are doing this month. Thank you to each of you for all of your hard work!

Niki Jaburek Niki has been working really hard to improve our peer mentor program. She has been meeting weekly with our mentors and coming up with new ways to improve advising in our office and the survey course. She has also been doing a very good job of mastering our complex curriculum. We are very appreciative of Niki’s hard work.
Matt Moore-Waitkus & Mouris Danial These two gentlemen absolutely slayed the first two weeks of spring registration!! They alone are responsible for over 250 15-minute advising appointments. Fisher College is so happy to have these amazing colleagues!
Meg Downing Meg handled so many questions about adding and dropping classes during the 10th week and helped me out a lot by covering some of my walk-in hours so I could attend another meeting. She’s also been super helpful and understanding this month and has been going the extra mile to make sure I stay grounded and it has been MUCH appreciated!
Deni Allman Deni is always fabulous, but she really stepped up this past month! She covered multiple survey classes due to advisor absence (including teaching FOUR IN A ROW one day). In addition, she saw a very high number of students during scheduling walk-ins. And she did it all with a smile on her face.
Laura Whitaker Laura is ALWAYS a team player and volunteers to help others in the office on a regular basis. I was out during the 10th week of this semester and Laura assisted several of my students (some of which were challenging situations) on top of her already super busy schedule with no complaints. She also graciously covered my transfer survey course and stayed at work much later in the day to be there for it. These are just a few small examples of Laura’s generosity and kindness. No matter how busy her own schedule is, she always makes time to help her colleagues. I can’t thank her enough for her help while I was out during such a busy week. She is the best!

And the winners of the ACADAOS raffle are…. Niki Jaburek & Laura Whitaker!

September 2018 Advisor of the Month!

Check out all the amazing things our advising colleagues have done this month! Thank you for all of your hard work!

Max Gulick Max has had a lot on his plate this semester as the coordinator of the EXP 1100 survey class in addition to a full advising load. There have been a lot of changes this year, particularly incorporating the IPads into the survey class, and Max has stepped up and made this transition much smoother for the rest of the team at Newark, all the while remaining available to his students (and taking graduate classes!) I’ve really appreciated all of the detailed follow-up he has done in implementing new processes and formats for class materials. He has worked with us for a little over a year now and has made an excellent addition to our team!

Congratulations Max!
