Residence Life, the Academic Advising Center (AAC) and sev- eral other departments on cam- pus will begin a series of ses- sions this semester for students called "The Not So Common Hour." In these sessions, students will have the opportunity to interact
with various departments on re- curring issues and problems. "The origin came from ad- visors in the AAC that realized there are recurring issues that come up in our interactions with the students that could be addressed in a comprehensive way, rather than email reminders or it being in a manual," AAC Advisor Mollie Labeda said. Topics to be discussed over
the four sessions include peer and faculty advice on study tips for the new semester and how to communicate and solve prob- lems professionally; preventing plagiarism, research assistance and how to write a great pa- per; information on studying abroad and information on sum- mer classes and summer career advice. These sessions will be held
once a month during the com- mon hour at 1:30 p.m. on Mondays, starting Jan. 28 with peer and faculty advice to "Get off on the right foot." The other dates include Feb. 18, March 11 and April 8. Other departments par- ticipating in these information sessions include the Library staff, Student Life, Financial Aid, Center for International
Education, SGA, the Writing Center and Career Services. The Academic Advising Center is looking to expand these sessions to be year-round starting next year, while also ex- panding and adding new topics that address student concerns.
