Undergraduate English Advising (UEA)

As of Summer 2011, Undergraduate English Advising has made the transition to a new team of English Department faculty. We're here to talk about more than just graduation dates. With a variety of backgrounds both in and out of the English department, we're here to help you make smart decisions about your English classes based on your interests, your timelines, and your career plans. To make an appointment, contact Elena Reyna in our Main English Office at 665-3421.
