Based on academic and extracurricular interests, sophomores are each assigned an individual advisor in the house who serves as the student's primary academic advisor in the fall term. Students declare a concentration in mid-November, at which point primary academic advising duties begin to transition to the individual concentrations. Sophomores' advisors in the house continue to meet with students and discuss their academic progress, but in the spring term the house-based advising program emphasizes more general academic issues like internship, study abroad, and fellowship opportunities, as well as building successful relationships with faculty members.
Just about everything you could possibly need to know concerning sophomore advising, concentrations, and the like is linked through the Advising Programs Office. Particularly helpful is the page that has all pertinent information about undergraduate concentrations such as concentration requirements, courses, and advisors.
All resident tutors in Winthrop House serve as sophomore advisors. Priya Shanmugam is the Sophomore Advising Coordinator for Winthrop House. If you have questions about the program, please drop her a line!
