Yes, the academic advisors are facilitating the departmental sessions, so you will certainly have the opportunity to interact with them in the two departmental sessions you select. In the event that you are interested in connecting with other advisors, we will have a full listing of departmental contacts available.
We encourage participants to dress comfortably and bring a light sweater or jacket as some areas may be cooler than others. You would also need to be prepared to do a moderate amount of walking throughout the building.
