Advisement questions

Dear Fellows,

As faculty, you represent the face of the college to our students.  Because of this, you may encounter questions from students that lie outside your area of expertise – mathematical content.  We’ll be spending some time on November 17th addressing these kinds of questions, and giving you the resources you need to help direct students most effectively. 

Before Seminar 6 on November 17, please post here on the OpenLab ONE or TWO EXAMPLES of questions you’ve received from students that are *not* directly related to course content (questions about registration, careers, financial aid, bureaucracy, personal problems, etc.) – especially questions you aren’t sure how to answer, or “questions that scare you!”
