We’re so glad you’re going to join us! You made a great decision!

We’ll work every day to deliver on your hopes and expectations and to ensure that your experience here is what you want and need. We’ll help you gain knowledge, tools, skills, mentoring, networks and experiences in an environment that’s diverse and inclusive. Know what is expected of you and do not hesitate to get help.

Give us feedback; we’ll act on it. (A few times each term, we hold Chat with the Deans sessions in the Armfield Atrium to talk about any topic of interest to students. Get to know Charletta Sims-Evans, our assistant dean for student affairs, and her team. They are great advocates for students.)

Each department’s student services professionals are great sources of information. Your academic adviser is a great source of advice and support. Your classmates will be your friends, confidantes and peers; some of them for long after you graduate.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, even before you start. Learn about our student organizations. They’re doing fabulous work! Meet some of our student entrepreneurs.

Stay on top of current news and events at the School through our website, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook pages.

We can’t wait to meet you! Go Heels!
