Hello, I am the Professional Advisor for the Wright School of Business. I advise freshman and sophomore level students. Once a student is ready to move to upper division coursework (business core/ major), they will be assigned to a faculty member in their chosen major field. If the faculty advisor is not available, students are welcome to contact me with questions/ concerns. However meeting with the professional advisor should not replace regular contact with the faculty advisor.
