This is a small campus and a tight community. We’re serious about helping each other. So advising happens in a deep, meaningful way. In their first semester, students meet with an advisor every week to talk about their work and their life. They can change advisors when they choose a concentration, and they pick an advisor for their senior thesis. With all of these people, regular meetings—formal and informal—are the norm.
Simon’s Rock is concerned with the intellectual, moral, and personal development of each student. Academic advisors work closely with each student, meeting weekly with the student during the first semester and conferring with residence directors to insure that all aspects of the College experience help each student achieve intellectual and personal competence and independence. Academic advisors help students plan their course work, meet academic challenges, and discover their aptitudes and intellectual directions.
