In addition to being advised by the Academic Advising Center, all incoming freshmen majoring in a business discipline are mentored by select CBA faculty to aid with their transition into college life. This initiative aims to increase student satisfaction, improve motivation, and increase retention, leading to the student’s progression through his/her degree plan, and eventually graduation.
College of Business mentors are full-time faculty members who were specifically chosen to assist freshmen in achieving their educational and career goals as they progress through their courses. Freshmen should expect to be contacted by their mentors during their first semester; mentors are also listed in Banner as a freshman’s secondary adviser. As students enter their sophomore year, mentors become a student’s academic adviser.
