Fall 2020/Spring 2021 Group Advising Sessions and Workshops

Group Advising Sessions

Group advising sessions are intended to serve as an orientation to the Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office for incoming first-year students or any student new to a pre-medical/dental track. All students are expected to have first attended either a live [or virtual, as of Spring 2020] group advising session or viewed a recording of a group advising session in its entirety prior to requesting a one-on-one appointment with an advisor.

  • Rising sophomores and above have met this requirement if they have attended a live [virtual]¬†group advising session at any time prior to Fall 2020 (but all students are always welcome to attend additional sessions!).
  • Incoming first-year students or any student new to a pre-medical/dental track in Fall 2020 must attend either a live [virtual] group advising session or view a recording of a group advising session taking place in Fall 2020 or after.

The Fall 2020 schedule for live [virtual] group advising sessions is:

  • Thursday, August 27 / 10-11:30 am
  • Monday, September 14 / 11-12:30 pm
  • Thursday, October 15 / 1-2:30 pm
  • Monday, November 16 / 10-11:30 am
