The Student Life and Development (SLD) Office Working Remotely Effective March 19, 2020

SLD advisors will be available online Monday - Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm starting March 19, 2020, until further notice.

Email Advising: Students can email their SLD Advisors listed below with questions regarding their student organizations. Please include your Name, Campus ID #, Phone #, student organization name, and any questions you may have.

Telephone Advising: Please email your SLD Advisor to schedule a telephone appointment.
