“What classes do I need for my major?”
“What is the General Education Program?”
“How do I transfer into Humanities and Social Sciences?”
Students can get answers to those and other questions in Caldwell Lounge. The Humanities and Social Sciences Academic Support Center, located in Caldwell Hall’s common area, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Appointments aren’t necessary, so students can step right up. Graduate students will be available at three booths in the lounge to advise students about university policies, academic records, degree requirements and university resources. For example, students can drop by if they need help with registering for classes, intracampus transfers or the General Education Program.
The advisers are available not only to Humanities and Social Sciences students, but all NC State students, particularly those considering transferring to the college, adding a Humanities and Social Sciences major or minor or needing help locating campus resources.
While the support center is an extra resource for students, it is not a substitute for traditional advising through a student’s major department. That means students must still visit their academic adviser for course registration approval. In addition, the student’s major department remains the most comprehensive source of information for degree requirements, careers, internships and discipline-specific graduate studies.
