The Office of the Dean of Students is an instant source of help for dealing with many issues, as well as providing support and opportunities for students to be involved in numerous activities. Feel free to contact Dean Schroer, the associate dean for first-year students, at any time with concerns or questions.
There may be times when it is important to talk things over with an objective listener who can often provide relief and perspective, such as other staff in the Dean of Students Office, the Counseling Center, your professors, academic advisors, the Academic Support Center, Residence Hall Area Coordinators, the International Student Advisor, and College Ministry.
