Please be aware that faculty do not hold office hours in summer for advising. Students may still email advising questions to their assigned advisors (found in your Student Center), but faculty may not be able to respond quickly. For urgent matters, please check with the Department Chair in Tahoe Hall 3104.

Students who would like to become Government majors or minors should wait until the beginning of the fall semester and consult with an advisor then.
