About the English Advising Office
The English Department staffs two full-time academic advisors to serve students who major in English, Teaching of English, and Rhetoric/Creative Writing, and students who minor in English.
Anna Ivy and Adrienne Johnson have office hours in 200 English Building:
Monday through Friday
- Mornings: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. appointments; 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. walk-ins
- Afternoons 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. appointments; 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. walk-ins
To schedule an appointment, please call the advising office administrator Angela Smith at 333-4346.
Anna and Adrienne provide orientation and registration advising for students entering the University as freshmen or transfer students. After initial contact, academic advising is voluntary except for mandatory freshmen advising for spring term. We do encourage all majors to visit our office each semester or year to be certain they are on track as they progress through their degree. We especially urge graduating seniors to see us before they register for their final year and semester.
Anna and Adrienne are also Study Abroad advisors for majors and all students taking English courses abroad for credit. Students see us to approve courses before and/or after studying abroad.
The advising office has a variety of information of interest to majors including:
- Curriculum lists for our majors/minors
- English honors program overview, rules, and thesis contracts (Engl 391)
- Independent study forms (Engl 290)
- Course description booklets for each term
- LAS rules for intra or inter college transfers
- English Department scholarships
Several bulletin boards just outside and inside the office hold timely posters and notices of interest to majors.
