CLAS Advising Center Has New Name: The A Center
The Colleges of Letters, Arts and Science Advising Center is making some organizational changes, including a new name.
Now called The A Center, the office will continue to serve students who are undecided, undeclared or changing majors as well as those in pre-health professions and pre-law programs. Students pursuing a bachelor's degree in global studies will be advised through the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and advising for the Bachelor of Science in general studies and minor in medieval studies will be housed in the College of Humanities.
Leticia Soto-Delgadillo, executive director of The A Center, says the name change reflects the office's ongoing objectives.
"We are continuing our mission to advise students, to affirm their major choice and to attain a University of Arizona degree," Soto-Delgadillo said. "While we have done some reorganization within the center, the advising duties will remain mostly the same."
The center also has the same location, Bear Down Gymnasium.
The center is also involved with the University's Wayfinders initiative, designed to help first-year students navigate academic offerings and connect with faculty and their academic advisers through a network of college-appointed advising experts. Lo Que Pasa profiled the new program in August.
