Academic Advising

We know it’s a strange time to be a student, especially when your campus is closed and your community activities and social interactions are limited. So we’re sending this message to you to check in and say hi, and to remind you that we’re still your Academic Advisors no matter what’s going on right now.

Not sure what your life as a student will look like next month? We hear you. This is uncharted territory for all of us, but hopefully we can provide you with a little bit of clarity on what to expect and what is expected of you. We’re here to help you plan for the rest of the semester as things continue to develop and change. Here are some things to keep in mind for now:

  • We can’t meet with you in person right now, but we’ll still have regular open advising hours on Google Hangouts—just look for academicadvising@calarts.edu and send us a message. We will be online during our regular open advising hours, 10 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.
  • We can also schedule a virtual meeting with you during regular appointment hours using whatever tool you’re most comfortable with—Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts. Just send us an email to get something on the schedule.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you have about how to proceed this semester. Even if we don’t know the answer to something, we can figure it out or point you to someone who can help. We look forward to seeing you soon but until then, take care of yourselves and each other, and when in doubt, make art!

Your Academic Advisors,

Brian Gershey (he / him / his) and Cy Gage (they / them / theirs)
