As you may know, each undergrad is assigned a faculty advisor who you may contact and meet with for answers to questions you may have and sign off on Academic Program Plans. This is in addition to Becky Stillwell, Prof. James LaFave, and Prof. Liang Liu who provide advising to every undergrad in the department. I've attached a spreadsheet containing faculty advisee assignments. It is sorted alphabetically by student's last name. You should also be able to look up your faculty advisor in your DARS Audit and in Enterprise UI.
