Advising programs win national honor

The Orientation Academic Advising Programs in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences have been selected as recipient of an outstanding Institutional Advising Program Certificate of Merit by the National Academic Advising Association.

The college will receive the certificate in a ceremony and reception held as part of the annual NACADA conference in Chicago in October.

The Franklin College provides academic advising to incoming students, both first-year and transfer, during the annual summer orientation program. Approximately 4,000 students seeking degrees in bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, pre-business and pre-journalism degree programs, as well as students seeking pre-professional programs in nursing and pharmacy, are advised by the Office of Student Services staff under the direction of the associate dean of the college.
