Are you in need of guidance to shape your goals toward academic success? Thinking of a major to declare, but aren’t too sure of the process? Not too sure who your academic advisor is? Not to worry!

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) is continuing its peer mentoring program this semester. The CLASS peer mentors are available to provide peer advisement to CLASS students as well as UOG students from any major.
