Bridgewater State University has an active, well-developed First Year Student Advising Program. The program involves multiple contacts with students across the first and second semester and is coordinated by the Academic Achievement Center. The five mandatory contacts for First Year Students are outlined in this link.
Advising is done by a combination of staff members in the AAC and BSU
faculty. Faculty are compensated for their time working in the AAC either by
course-load reallocation through APRs or summer stipends. The AAC always needs
faculty advisors, and faculty who teach First Year Seminars may be particularly
well suited to these tasks.
If you are interested in helping first year students adjust to college coursework and get the most out of their BSU education, please consider becoming an AAC Faculty Advisor. For information, contact Steve Viveiros, Assistant Director of the AAC.
