Communicate with Your Advisor

Meet with your academic advisor to discuss declaring majors and developing an outline of courses for your time at TU. Make an effort to meet with your academic advisor 1-2 times per semester. Make sure you are on track to graduate and taking the correct courses for your major and minor.

Get Familiar With Your Campus and the Resources Available

Get involved—there is a wide variety of clubs, activities, and groups to join on campus. Join the Commuter Advocacy and Resource Society (CARS). Consider studying abroad and visit the Center for Global Education (CGE). Visit the Student Association (SA) and Student Activities websites to learn about student organizations, intramural sports, leadership opportunities, and TU discounts at local venues. Go to True Blue Neighbors and find ways to volunteer. Log in to the TU portal and check the campus calendar of events daily.

Visit different buildings and get familiar with your new campus, meet new people, and find spots to hang out and study. For more information on all the offices you should visit to set up email, buy your parking permit, search for campus jobs, buy textbooks, etc. Read the Academic Bulletin and Student Code of Conduct and know the rules at TU.
