Instructor & First-Year Adviser
As a faculty associate and first-year adviser in the Roy H. Park School of Communications, Professor Jill Loop focuses primarily on student success. Loop works with each first-year class of 400 to 500 students on transitioning to college, academic planning, and exploring careers and degree programs. Besides advising, she manages the Park peer mentoring program, and teaches in the Ithaca Seminar and Honors programs. A first-generation college student herself, Loop enjoys helping students navigate the ins and outs of transitioning from high school to college as well as gaining a sense of ownership of their degrees.
