Connect with an LFS Academic Advisor

Meeting with an Academic Advisor (Michelle, Ella, Bonita, Jordan and Shannon) is a good idea for when you have general questions about:

  • planning your program or degree requirements
  • how to make the most of your LFS academic and non-academic experience
  • a personal challenge that is impacting your academics

We provide confidential advising and will do our best to answer your questions, or help connect you with appropriate resources.

Have a question about the Global Resource Systems (GRS) or Go Global programs? Connect with our Global Resource Systems and Go Global Program Advisor, Roxana Quinde.

Our office is currently offering academic advising via In-Person and Zoom Drop-In Advising (see below for details). Booked Appointments are not currently being offered, but will be available again in late-January after the registration period is over. Please check the information and schedule below to learn how to connect with our office. Please check the information and schedule below to learn how to connect with our office.  

Drop-in Advising

Drop-In Advising sessions are held either In-Person (MCML 344) or via Zoom – please make sure to check the LFS Undergrad Events Calendar to see if the session will be offered in-person or via Zoom. To help us meet with as many students as possible, we are limiting drop-in appointments to 15 minutes, so please bring your most urgent 1-2 questions.

Instructions for Zoom Drop-In Advising:

  • Find a Drop-In Zoom Advising time that fits with your schedule from the LFS Undergrad Events Calendar.
  • Click into the “Drop-In Zoom Advising” block that you wish to join. You’ll be prompted to provide us with your current student status and student number to join the virtual waiting room.
  • Depending on the number of students in the waiting room, it may be some time before an advisor connects with you. Once we have reached capacity for the day, the waiting room will be locked and no new students will be admitted.
  • If the room is locked when you join, it means that we have reached capacity for the day. Please try joining a different drop-in advising session, or sending us an email at

For In-Person Drop-In Advising Sessions, please come to the H.R. MacMillan Building, room 344, during the scheduled time, and check-in at the front desk (or ring the bell, if no one is available).


We look forward to connecting with you!
