Spring is in the Air

Whatever the temperature may be, remember that spring is right around the corner. Get ready to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air on the Diag or the Grove. Go out for a run, get a pick up game going, or throw the frisbee around. Get outside for a quick pick-me up or to unwind.

This is the time to plan your Fall Term courses.  Backpacking will start March 22. Make sure you're taking the right courses to stay on track. Make an appointment now!
Got a quick question? Drop in for Walk-In Wednesdays, 1-4pm, every week. Meet with one of our EAC advisors and get your questions answered in a flash!
Take time this summer to explore your career interests and prospective paths. Connect with our Engineering Career Resource Center to learn about networking and informational interviewing - excellent ways to learn more about different engineering fields.
If you meet the requirements, you can declare this term. You must be in Good Academic Standing (2.0 GPA or above); have credit for one math and one science course; have credit for either Engr 100 or Engr 101/151; and have straight C's or above in these core courses. There's no rush, but if you know your major, it's time to connect and declare. The department advisors are the program experts. You'll then work with your department advisor until you graduate. 
You have until 11:59pm on March 17 to withdraw from a class, or edit an elective to Pass/Fail. These changes require an online request form and approval from your advisor. Always discuss your plans with your EAC Advisor first.
Connect and collaborate - that's how you get through your classes! In addition to instructors' office hours, utilize these effective resources for your core courses: Engineering Learning Center, Math Lab, Science Learning Center, and Physics Help Room. Great resources for your core courses!
Thinking about taking a class at home this summer? It can be a great way to stay on track. Check in with your advisor to get the basics of transfer credit, and to confirm that your course will transfer the way you want it to. Another reason to make an appointment
