Active and engaged advising is a hallmark of the Earth Systems Program. We offer a tiered advising network that starts with an annual cohort of student advisors and includes committed staff & faculty. We pride ourselves on offering advising and guidance on a "one human being at a time" basis. Please feel free to set up an appointment or just stop by for help. Student Advisors hold weekly office hours in the Earth Systems office during the academic year. Our doors are always open!
