Drop-Ins | Fall 2024 Semester 

Drop-ins will resume when classes begin for the fall semester, but we still offer scheduled in-person or Zoom meetings. Please use the link above. 

Drop-in meetings are offered during the Fall and Spring academic semesters for quick questions. These meetings are typically 15 minutes or less.  If you think you need more than 15 minutes, we recommend that you make an appointment with your advisor. Drop-in meetings will only be available during the specified schedule listed below.

When the university is closed (no classes are offered), drop-in meetings will not be offered. 

Drop-ins are offered in the CALS Zone (Mann Library 112); drop-ins are limited to 15 minutes.
