Our general advisers help students plan and shape their undergraduate experience at the UW. In addition to assistance with tasks such as choosing a major and planning course schedules, advisers engage in a broader dialogue with individual students to better clarify their academic and personal goals.
“My adviser helped me solve a lot of questions about choosing courses and how to plan out my academic career. I have been meeting with my adviser consistently just to make sure I am on the right track at the UW, and also I got so much good advice about how to thrive in college.”Jimmy's Story

I thought I would be a dentist, so I was taking lots of science classes. Later, after I realized I didn't want to continue studying science, I was taking a course about the history of science and religion that was co-listed with History, Anthropology, and Comparative History of Ideas (CHID). I met some CHID students in that course and it sounded like a perfect fit for me. I met with the CHID advisor and decided to do a double degree with CHID and Communication!
