Advising Shout Outs
Navigating the Engineering college experience can be overwhelming for students, but the advising staff is here to help students through the entire process – from your arrival on campus through graduation. We want to recognize some of the outstanding accomplishments of the advisors and their student advisees!
Nick Balser has immensely increased engagement amongst students who have sought help in their transition into our college. He goes beyond the call of duty in his mentorships, forming strong bonds with his students and creating a welcoming environment that makes students feel comfortable. He is an incredible role model to his students, helping them become the engineering leaders they will need to be in their careers. Nick is an integral part to the futures of his students and this college, and we cannot thank him enough for all he has done.RILEY SHORT, PRESIDENT OF MISSOURI ENGINEERING STUDENT COUNCIL
“I really enjoy being an Academic Advisor for the Undeclared/Undecided and First Year Engineering students. I enjoy helping my students explore their options and helping them to find ways to succeed in their academic and life goals. Many students coming from high school feel pressured to make a decision on a major before starting college, but it’s ok to be undecided on a major during your freshman year – Freshman year is your chance to take the opportunity to explore! I am a strong believer that advising is teaching, not just helping students pick out classes – Advising should be more about life coaching.”
