The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) has a rich heritage of individualized undergraduate student advising by faculty. While CASNR’s traditional advising model has evolved to include very talented professional advisors, the commitment to personalized advising (academic as well as non-academic, personal as well as professional) remains a hallmark of the College.
