Visit the Advising Center

Below are some reasons why students have visited the Allen Student Advising Center. The text was submitted by Allen Center staff with alternate names for the students who received help and support.


"Whitney stopped by the Allen Center and added a minor. She will graduate with both the major and the minor that will help her be competitive in her field!"

"Ben woke up this morning and realized he really didn't like his major. He didn't know what field he really wanted to pursue, so he came in and we helped him explore the 200+ programs here so he could stay at the university he loves but be in a program that was a better fit."

"Robert had been here for three semesters and wasn't doing well. While he wasn't quite sure why he wasn't doing well, he also didn't know where to go for help. We talked about the resources available on campus and the different strategies he could take to improve his performance."

"Juan Diego wants to double major in four years but doesn't know if this is possible. JD meets with an academic advisor who helps him come up with an academic success plan which enables him to maximize his time at Ohio University."

"Anna was a first-year student and the first person in her family to attend college. She came in initially because she wanted some help learning how to manage her time. She also wanted to make sure that she got the most out of her college experience, but wasn't sure exactly how to do that. The advisor she met with talked to her about time management strategies so that she could fit in all the different things she wanted to do while also maintaining high grades. Anna and the advisor also talked about Anna's major. The two perused the undergraduate catalog and discovered that Anna could add a minor and certificate and still graduate on time! They also discussed out of class involvement and Anna became involved in the Ohio Fellows Program and the Global Leadership Center. By the end of her first year, Anna was thriving and seeking summer internship opportunities."

"Christy does not mesh well with her academic advisor and would like to talk to someone else to make sure she's on the right track."

"Brandon is not doing well in a class and is worried that he will be put on probation or be academically dismissed, so we used the GPA calculator to figure out what will happen in his circumstance."
