College of Business Administration advising assistants program

Submitted by Miranda Cook

Advising Assistants

In its fourth year of existence, as of early October, the College of Business Administration advising assistants program has visited with more than 77 students and helped 48 first-year students draft a long-range plan for their academic careers.

The advising assistants work in tandem with the academic advisor team and provide an opportunity for students to meet with and learn from an experienced and successful peer student. In addition to helping students draft long-range plans, they explain how to use KSIS and the Degree Audit Reporting System, or DARS, for academic planning and navigation and provide information about tips for enrollment and scheduling. The advising assistants also share information about college and university activities and resources.

To assist students develop their long-range plan, the advising assistants hosted a Long Range Plan and DARS workshops for 91 students this semester. At these workshops advising assistants and advisors deliver a presentation prior to a group advising sessions. In order to gain more information about the College of Business Administration's curriculum, students gather in small groups for their major of interest to build a long-range plan. The workshop allows for a hands-on and interactive experience for students to work with fellow students.

Advising assistants are housed with the academic advising and career development team in the College of Business Administration Student Success Center and are available by walk-ins from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or email at cbaadvisingassistant@k-state.edu
