Supportive mentors provide guided exploration.
As an exploratory student, you’ll be supported by the Office of Academic Advising and your faculty adviser. Your Ithaca Seminar instructor will be your academic adviser, so you can see your adviser weekly—up to four times a week in your first semester!
Faculty volunteer to teach the Ithaca Seminar, which means they are very interested in exploratory students and understand the transitions and challenges they encounter. Advisers are actively involved in specialized advising workshops, are well versed in the issues you face as an exploratory student, and are passionate and thoughtful supporters as you find your path.
