“Filter the advice and filter the source.” James D. Fisk
Your primary advice regarding courses and preparation for future careers should
be obtained from your faculty advisor. Faculty are equipped to give suggestions as to
selection of sequence of courses that will match your abilities and interests. Advisors
will give advice but the final responsibility for proper course selection and completion of graduation requirements rests with you. Take advising seriously; put effort into course selection, major and program requirements before you meet with your advisor.
Additional advice and information may be obtained from any member of the HPC or from Ted Johnson, Jean Porterfield (the Biomedical Studies Director) or the Piper Center for Vocation and Career located in the Modular Village. You do not need to change advisors to an HPC faculty member. Obtain advice from those whose opinions you trust. Carefully consider the advice you are given, but also consider the bias of the person giving the advice.
