Let’s hear it for the Undergraduate Advisement Team!
This team spent countless hours this last summer helping incoming freshman through the Forge process and getting enrolled. They tackled August peak season with an amazing team spirit. They served over 3,100 students in the month of August alone. They have continued day in and day out with not much rest in-between. When you ask them why they do what they do they say, “because I’m in it for the students!” They love what they do, and they do it well and our students benefit tremendously from their efforts. This team is unstoppable!
