"There are a lot of good people and good times to be had in college, but along with that, there are also moments when it’s a challenge. When your classes are tough or life in general doesn't’ seem to be on your side, it’s in those moments when Academic Advising and Career Development wants to assist. From personal experience, I can testify that through these doors is the easy way." Laura Hawk, Class of 2018
