Advising Events

SEAS offers an array of opportunities throughout the year for students to familiarize themselves with the different concentration pathways and to connect with concentration advisors, faculty and upperclassmen in those areas. Additionally, SEAS-affiliated student organizations also host a variety of events throughout the year to connect interested freshmen and sophomores with advising from their peers. The list below contains all events and activities related to advising that have taken place or will take place in the 2017-18 school year.
