It’s time to dust off that backpack, pick up your U-Pass, and head back to school because Autumn Quarter is now underway. All of us here at the COE Advising Office would like you welcome you to DePaul. So, put your schedule in your planner (check Campus Connection if you still don’t know what it is!), buy your books from the bookstore, and get ready to buckle down and learn for the next ten weeks.
If you still haven’t finalized your schedule for the Autumn Quarter, we’ve got you covered. All this week, you can stop SAC 481 for walk-in appointments with your Academic Advisor. The last day to add a class is Tuesday, September 11th so you’ve still got a little bit of time to make your final decisions. If you’ve got a quick question, you can always IM the COE Advising Office.
Thinking about getting involved in something other than your classes? Autumn Quarter is also going to be the quarter to “Get Involved” on campus, and we’re going to be helping you ease into the new school year with some helpful tips on how to participate in the organizations and volunteer opportunities that DePaul has to offer. DePaul currently offers over 300 student organizations and the list can be quite daunting to sort through.
But, no worries. We’ve done the work for you and will give you more information on organizations that will get you excited about your future career in education (and will give your resume a little boost). Each week, you can look forward to learning about student organizations that are currently on campus holding events, volunteering, and talking about education-related issues. Then it’s up to you to take the plunge, use your Campus Connect account to log on to OrgSync, and join!
Also, we know that you like us in real life, so be sure to “like” our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. That way, you’ll be able to receive up-to-date news and reminders, as well as information on the traffic for walk-in appointments.
