Your academic advisor is your most important resource for information about academics. We invited highly qualified members of the faculty, staff, and administration to participate. Each of our advisors will serve a very small number of University Studies students. You should also feel free to contact the coordinator of the program, Barbara Wirth, bawirth (at) plymouth (dot) edu or (603) 535-3253. We welcome your questions, calls, and e-mail.
The Undergraduate Advising Center –
The foundation of the advising process is the relationship between the advisor and the student. In this process, the advisor helps students to review, select, and reach their educational objectives in a professional, helpful, and mutually respectful atmosphere that allows students to:

Clearly define their educational objectives;
Plan programs which incorporate their interests, abilities and careers goals; and
Make full use of the facilities and resources available at Plymouth State.
