One misconception is that we have the only advisors on campus. Students frequently stop in looking for a faculty advisor, and we direct them to the advisor’s location or contact information.
Because so many students see an advisor in the advisement center, people think that we don’t encourage students to see their assigned (faculty) advisor. We do, all the time! But if you don't know where to go with a question about your class schedule or academic progress, the Advisement Center is a good place to start.
