It is time to make your advising appointment for spring semester. Advising runs until November 9, 2012. Full information can be found at You can also connect to the site under QUICK LINKS on the homepage. 


If you have not used the appointment system before, you will need to click the green REGISTER HERE button on the right side. Step one is to look up your advisor in MY OHIO. Then login to the system and make an appointment with that advisor.


There are important notes for Post-Secondary, Nursing, Electronic Media, Probation, Social Work, BSS and BTAS students, so please review the site carefully.


2)      Get in the Spirit and show your creativity…

Let your creativity flow and dress up for Halloween.  Costumes don’t have to be distracting; in fact they can encourage creative problem solving.  For example, Use Band-Aids to “tape” a photo of a beehive to your shirt and have others guess who you are. If you can’t figure this one out, watch the Week 11 News You Can Use for the answer! Thanks to Kathy Normansell, Recreation and Sports faculty member for encouraging us all to have some fun and be creative!
