Educational Advisors can help you to discover, plan and work toward your educational goals. You can achieve a more fulfilling educational experience through an advising relationship. While post secondary education can be one of life's most rewarding experiences, it can be a confusing adventure for some, and an intimidating process for others. We are available to answer your questions or steer you in the right direction when questions arise.
