First-Year Advising Team
The First-Year Advising Team advises incoming first-year students. The team is comprised of a collection of professional advisors and trained student peer-advisors. Our mission is to create meaningful student programming to aid in the transition between high school and your first-semester as a college student.
Our programming begins with a mandatory orientation prior to the start of your first semester, and continues across the first semester with the First-Year Experience. This includes workshops and activities that teach the most important and essential items to help with the early transition steps to Hunter.
The First-Year Advising Team manages the development, implementation, and communication with our new incoming students. From choosing a Learning Community that focuses on your academic interests, to learning about Hunter’s graduation requirements and the many online student tools, we help you build a foundational understanding of how to plan and navigate your academics and campus life at Hunter.
