Fall 2021 Advising Updates

ENVS majors/minors: Please schedule advising meetings by clicking here.  Prospective ENVS majors/ minors should email envsadvising@vcu.edu to set up an appointment with Lindsay Freeman.

Walk in advising will resume on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021, and will likely be held on Wednesdays from 1-3pm and on Thursdays from 10am-Noon. Walk ins are first come, first served and are meant for quick advising check ins (10-15 mins).  If you need to meet for longer than 10 minutes, it is best to schedule a full advising appointment.

All advising appointments are currently being held on Zoom, but Lindsay will be doing a mix of in person and Zoom advising (including walk ins) during the fall semester.  Please stay tuned for more specific details about that!   When in person advising resumes, walk ins and advising appointments for ENVS majors will be held in room 107 of the Trani Life Sciences Building.
