Who Can I meet with?
If you cannot find any appointments with a faculty advisor, you can always reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our Undergraduate Program Coordinator office hours (see below) for assistance!
Undergraduate Program Coordinators
The Undergraduate Office is managed by the Undergraduate Program Coordinators, Olga Mustata and Kelsi Archibald. They also serve as staff advisors for the department.
If you would like to attend Virtual Office Hours, please join the waiting room during the scheduled time. Once in the waiting room, students will be seen in the order they arrived (note: so long as you join before the scheduled end, our coordinators will see you, so please do not leave!).
Please note our Undergraduate Coordinators are unable to declare students during their office hours as it takes about 30 minutes to declare, however you can email email@example.com to make an appointment to declare the major/minor.
How can Olga and Kelsi help? They are able to help with any advising issue with the exception of transfer credit evaluations (please make an advising appointment with one of the Faculty Advisors below for this service).

Economics Faculty Advisors
**Offices with an "M" before the number are on the Mezzanine level of Lorch Hall. The easiest way to find them is to take the elevator to level "M."
Also: No student should be enrolled in an economics course that is officially scheduled to meet at the same time as (or that overlaps in time with) any other course on the student’s schedule. The department does not expect its faculty to accommodate such conflicts, and it will not encourage them to do so.
Undergraduate advising is offered by many units on campus. For general advice from orientation through graduation, regardless of your major or minor, contact the Newnan Academic Advising Center. For students seeking postgraduate employment, contact the Career Center. Lastly, the LSA Opportunity Hub is a College of LSA initiative dedicated to pairing the broad and valuable skills of a liberal arts education with real-life experience, strategic advising, and the benefit of connecting with employers and alumni.
