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
  • shout out TO ACADEMIC ADVISOR NICK BALSER!
  • Nick recently attended Hobsons Summer Institute (HSI) in Marco Island, Florida. HSI is an annual event held by the company Hobsons who owns the higher education platform, Starfish (MU Connect). This conference highlights how higher education institutions are promoting student success while using Starfish as a tool. The conference lasted for three days with many breakout sessions. On the third day, I co-presented about the implementation of Starfish’s predictive analytics tool (MU Analytics). We told MU’s story of how we are implementing predictive analytics across the campus and specifically within engineering. This was a chance to highlight the work that MU is doing, being at the leading edge of this technology.
  • Congratulations to academic advisor Sandra Brown!
  • Sandra Brown received the May 2019 MU Advisor Shout Out Award. The goal of the Advising Shout Out Award is to recognize two undergraduate advisors each semester who have demonstrated the qualities associated with outstanding undergraduate student advising. Keep up the great work Sandra!
  • Hats Off to Students Tapped into Secret Societies
  • Congratulations to Six Engineers tapped into secret societies on Tap Day: Rusty Martin — 1984 Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate; Jamie Flores – Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Sheila Marie Connelly – Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering; Sharanya Kumar – Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering; Anna Merkel – Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Alexander Shafer – Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
