UB provides many resources to guide you in selecting and finishing an undergraduate degree. You have access to MyUB, you receive emails from professors and advisors, and you can look up a lot of information on the Registrar and Student Advisement, Resources & Financial Services website. Your professor posts information on UBLearns. So, why visit an advising web site?
It seemed to us that most of these resources assume that you know what you are looking for - but what if you don't know what you need to know? This is certainly most true about new freshmen, but it is equally true of experienced students as they reach new thresholds in their studies. You may not always feel confident that you know what questions to ask or what avenues you should investigate.
This web site can be accessed topically. If you know what questions you have, use the
A-Z index. We think its greatest value is that it helps you frame the questions that enable you to plan effectively. The First Year Student Resources, for example, guide you step-by-step in developing a plan for your first semester. The other parts of advising.buffalo.edu help you to make plans for those other big steps - choosing a major or changing directions. We provide thought provoking ideas about maximizing your undergraduate experience. Getting your degree is more than completing your requirements and we want to help you to frame your experience so you get the most out of it. We want to see you. If you don't know who your advisor is, use the links on the Advising Directory to locate your advisor.
