Are you unsure what each department does or where to refer a student?  Check out the Student Services “Cliff Notes”.   This includes very useful faculty information from Academic Advising (AAP), Evaluations, Student Learning Center, Counseling and Wellness, and much more.  Whether it’s information for you as faculty advisors, or to further assist your students with valuable campus resources, this sheet has it all!
