If you have concerns about academic policies, resources, and success, Kenyon's Office of Academic Advising is the place to go. They are the folks who will support you in your academic pursuits, and work with administrators and faculty on issues of concern.
Hoi Ning Ngai, the Dean for Academic Advising and Support, and the staff of the Office of Academic Advising, are dedicated to supporting students across class years. They work with you to help ensure that you make the most of your time at Kenyon and succeed on whatever path(s) you choose to take.
One of the first steps in charting your academic path is to connect regularly with your faculty advisor. Faculty advisors participate in new student orientation every fall to help answer questions about classes and scheduling. Many advisors stay active in subsequent semesters by providing guidance and support in course selection, goal definition, and postgraduate planning.
Once you declare a major, you will choose a faculty advisor from your major's department (unless your initial advisor is already in that department). This advisor will help you plan your major course of study and challenge you to seek new experiences outside your department.
As you navigate your time at Kenyon, make sure you connect with the Office of Academic Advising, as well as your faculty advisors, to provide you with the best strategies for academic success.
