Originating Calendar
BSIS Express Advising

Peer advising gives you the chance to get the perspective of other current iSchool upperclassmen on a variety of issues pertaining to your academic planning. 

Note that peer advising is NOT the same as meeting with an iSchool Academic Advisor. Rather, peer advising is meant to be a supplement to regular academic advising - giving you a student perspective. 

Common topics of discussion:  

    • What classes should you take?
    • What classes did the peer advisors enjoy that would help with your pathway?
    • What opportunities/internships/etc. should you look into? 
    • What are some iSchool tools/resources that could help you?
    • Exploring different pathways
    • Choosing courses for upcoming semesters based on your course plan
    • Running degree audits
    • General iSchool student experience, involvement, and tips for success


Attend Express In Person: Check in at the Academic Support Center on the 4th Floor of the 614 E Daniel St. Building. Bring your iCard!
