Welcome New and Continuing Danes!
We begin this last week of orientation season with a solar eclipse! How fitting that this wonder is taking place during the week that you are about to embark on, or continue on, a path that will alter your lives, and likely the lives of many others. In you, lies great hope and wonder. We, in the Advisement Services Center, are here to help you form your goals and to help you to reach them. We are here to push you, should you begin to lose momentum, to encourage you, when you think that you cannot go on, and to cheer for you when you have successes. Comments are encouraged and appreciated.

Are you ready? Here we go!
Here are some announcements about making appointments with an advisor in our office:
Our last round of Summer Orientations takes place this week and we are looking forward to meeting with our New Danes. If you have a question for your academic advisor, please e-mail them. They will be wrapped up in orientation and may not be able to meet with you in-person, until the first week of classes.
The First Week of Classes through September 5:
During the first week of classes through Tuesday September 5, every advisor in the Advisement Services Center meets with students on a first-come, first-served basis. We will be open M-F, 8:30 am – 5 pm. If you need assistance just come in! If your advisor is in our office, make sure to select “Walk-in for My Advisor” at the kiosk, and you will be put on the list to see your advisor. If you have a general question and/or your advisor in not in our office, you select “Meet with ANY advisor” at the kiosk. Our Peer Advisors will also be available to assist you.

Common Purpose Global Leader Experience
Applications Due May 31st!
What if the world’s greatest challenges were in your hands?
Join UAlbany’s Center for Leadership and Service, Stony Brook University, Binghamton University, Fashion Institute of Technology, and SUNY’s SAIL Institute for Academic & Innovative Leadership for the Common Purpose Global Leadership Experience in New York City, July 10-13, 2017.
Develop your leadership skills to help influence the future of the world. Along with your fellow participants, you will play a part in tackling the biggest issues facing business, governments, and society today. A Global Leader Experience (GLE) gives you real and practical experiences, instills in you a global perspective, and challenges you to adapt and thrive in diverse situations. It equips you with the tools you need to lead change, now and in the future.
The Challenge for 2017/2018 is “How do smart cities ensure they are inclusive?” As a participant, you will explore this major world Challenge from a local perspective. You will meet visionary leaders from global businesses, governments and international not-for-profit organizations to help you and your fellow participants understand the Challenge in order to create innovative solutions. Best of all, you won’t be alone; you will build your connections and make new friends – and the solutions and knowledge you all build will be passed to participants on other GLEs around the world. Common Purpose runs GLEs in cities around the world, where large numbers of the world’s talent convene to study, so you will meet fellow students from across the globe amongst this diverse group of participants.
