Meet with an iSchool Ambassador (Current Student)

Current InfoSci students (“InfoSci Ambassadors”) are also available to answer your questions!

Ambassador Drop-In Hours are Fridays from 1:30-4:00pm. Drop-in hours will be held both in-person in HBK 0217 and virtually via the link below. 

Ambassadors can assist with creating academic plans and answer basic questions about classes and prerequisites. They cannot assist with registration, policy exceptions, or advising blocks.

InfoSci Ambassadors are available to assist with common questions about the major such as:

  • What is the major like? What do you learn?
  • What are some good classes to take together?
  • What are some options for upper-level electives? Do I have to do a specialization?
  • How do I fill out an Academic Plan?
  • What should I do if I want to add another major or study abroad?
