Quick Question: The Advising Podcast

Share This...

Welcome to Quick Question, the advising podcast!

Each podcast is between 2-4 minutes and quickly answers a question frequently asked of the journalism school advisors. They are intended as a fun advising resource, not as a substitute for meeting with your assigned advisor. (Because what's more fun than seeing your advisor? Nothing!) This project first started in 2008. As such, some older podcasts may now be outdated. These are noted in the "transcript" section of the podcast.

Episodes 1-60 were recorded when Student Services was located in 101 Allen Hall. While Allen Hall is undergoing its transformation project, Student Services is temporarily located in 99 Agate Hall. Once we move back, our new location will be 134 Allen Hall.
