At the heart of First Year College (FYC) are experienced, knowledgeable professional academic advisors. They provide accurate academic advising, personal attention, and concern for students' well-being. The students' relationship with an advisor begins at summer Orientation and continues through the year. FYC academic advisors teach a first-year orientation course (USC 101 and 102) for their advisees each fall and spring. Not only do the students see their advisor weekly in the orientation course, they also meet with the advisor a minimum of two times each semester, for a total of four official advising meetings during the academic year.
My advisor was extremely helpful and made sure his students understood university policies and procedures. He took time with us individually to explore and discuss our future plans. I would recommend FYC to any incoming students who were undecided as to what they wanted to major in.
