Welcome to Graduate Advising!

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a graduate academic advisor called Mo Solo. Although she had been ordered by the Empire to advise students in a dry and boring manner, she hooked up with a group of rebels determined to make advising more fun. Instead of doing the same old, routine PowerPoint Wimba presentations for an online orientation, this group of rebels courageously inserted humor and zaniness, resulting in much less boring (but probably still tedious) online orientation. After that, encouraged by the other rebels, she brought a Star Wars blow-up punching bag to work. Later, she and fellow rebel Hoda Fett adopted a monkey and brought him to work for fun. Who knows what she will do next?!?

This is her attempt to make advising more fun.
Stay tuned! :-)

Welcome to the new blog for the Health Studies Department! This is a new opportunity for us to share our successes and ideas with each other, and everyone in our department has the ability to post here. You may want to tell us about an article you recently published, a conference you attended, a book or article that you read that made you think, or an upcoming important event that others might be interested in. So, take a look around, make yourself at home, and let us know what you've been doing, reading, and thinking!
