The board of advisors provides you with an integrated approach to advising, taking into account your academic, personal and career goals. You will consult with your board members to make informed decisions about how best to cultivate the leadership skills, global perspective and breadth of knowledge necessary to move through the world with confidence.
An exciting and unique component of Summit is the Board of Advisors. Board members provide students with individualized, expert advice to help them chart a successful course through college and beyond.
Your Advising Core
Before you even arrive on campus, you will be paired with a Summit Advisor to help you navigate the particulars of the Summit experience, from your first-year foundational courses to your global learning or leadership development specialization.
During orientation, you will also be partnered with a Peer Advisor for your first semester, an upper-level student who will help you enrich your academic life and your social life at Agnes Scott.
After you declare your major—usually by the end of your second year—you will be assigned your own Major Advisor, a faculty member who will guide and assist you in making the most of your chosen discipline or field of study.
Finally, in your third year at Agnes Scott, you’ll have the option to connect with a Career Ally. Upon completion of an application, you’ll be matched with your Ally—an alumna or a person who has worked in your target industry (or both)—who will prepare you for the professional world over the course of a 6-month mentorship.
