The Biology Department does not assign advisors to students. Instead, we allow you to choose your advisor. Here's how:

When you'd like to meet with an advisor, contact the Biology Undergraduate Office (see contact info above). We will arrange for you to meet with an advisor, at a time convenient for you. If you like the advisor you meet with, just request to meet with that person when you make subsequent advising appointments. Otherwise, you can try different advisors until you find one who is compatible with you.

Please feel free to contact us whenever you'd like to meet with an advisor. It's also fine to drop by the Undergrad Office any time to ask a question or get information. Or contact us by email (click on the links above).

There is a separate office for Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental advising. It is in Shade Tree Labs, just behind Morrill. For more information or to schedule an appointment, see this web page.
