The Department of Communication Studies has three faculty advisors, Dr. John Shibley, Nikki Loy and Mary Donato. Their job is counsel and advise you on the rules, regulations, and courses that are necessary for the completion of a degree. Your advisors are there to answer your questions, help solve your problems, and in some cases act as an advocate for you when dealing with problems. They are not there to schedule your classes or get you into closed classes, and they are not responsible for your errors. When your file is moved to the Department from the University Advising Center, you will be assigned to one of our advisors. Every semester, you will need to meet with them to discuss your progress and to determine which classes you will need to complete your degree. It is important that you listen to them and take their advice. Ultimately however, you are responsible for your degree program.
