Undergraduate Peer Advising
The Civil and Environmental Engineering department has four undergraduate majors. The department also has an undergraduate peer advisor group comprised of students currently in the major who are trained to answer your questions about classes, declaring, opportunities within the major, and all sorts of other relevant topics.
Peer advisors will usually have open drop-in hours posted online, or you can shoot them a quick email to schedule a meeting. Feel free to ask them about their experience within the major, or to ask more specific questions about finding an advisor, picking classes within the major, and so forth.
It’s Never Too Early to Visit a Peer Advisor
Peer advisors are a great starting point if you are curious about a major. You can go see one even during your very first quarter here! You can simply ask, “Why did you decide on this major? What should I know about it? What classes do you recommend? How did you decide among tracks? How do I get started with research?” and so forth. No preparation needed.
