Academic College Meetings are designed for you to meet with and hear from the faculty in your MAJOR and learn the important information you need for the first day of class. Some of these sessions will be presented by the academic college meaning you will attend with everyone that is majoring in the subjects of that college. Others will have individual sessions with only those faculty in your major.   

It is important that you log on using the correct link that coordinates with your college or major. It is also important that you do so at the time scheduled to avoid entering the virtual meeting late.   

Below is the list of Academic Areas and links to your Academic College Meeting.
