ACA Advising Expo

On Tuesday, September 27, 2011, ACA held its annual Advising Expo which is set up as a marketplace for students across campus to get information and majors, certificate programs, and resources available to our undergraduate students.  Initially the Excutive Committe was considering postponing the event for this year because a chair for the event had not come forward.  Then, as if on cue, two super-heros emergered from the Executive Committee to volunteer to chair and arrange all the details for Advising Day. 
ACA Advising Expo Co-Chairs:  Kristin Tommey & Jay Guevara

Because of the extreme weather we've experienced this summer and the lateness of securing co-chairs for the event, the only location that could be secured was the Student Activities Center Ballroom. Co-Coordinators Jay Guevara and Kristin Tommey, both from the School of Undergraduate Students Center for Strategic Advising, pulled off an excellent event that gave students, staff and faculty an opportunity to learn about many of the advising and student services available on campus in a 'one-stop-shopping' format. In all, about 100 students made their way through the marketplace.

Some of the best table displays included:

If any of our ACA members has a sincere desire to keep the tradition of this event going, please contact Nathan Vickers, President-Elect, to let him know you are interested in chairing or co-chairing this event in 2012. 

A Look Back in Time
Now, for a look back in time, here are some photos from ACA Advising Day back in 2005, 2003, 1995 and 1994.  Some of you may remember the tag line (and the buttons we wore), "Advising...it's not just for registration anymore."

2003 Event Co-Chairs:  Beverly Anderson Hamilton & Megan Connor
