Advising for Your Entire College Career
Academic advising doesn't end after your first year at UNO. You'll continue meeting with your college's advisors until graduation.
You'll have someone there every step of the way—making sure you're taking the right courses, helping you land an internship, and directing you to the appropriate resources.
