His advice:

Freshman/Soph.

Dr. LISA BEDORE - CLINIC AND OBSERVATION COORDINATOR

Things to know:
1. Check grad school requirements for observation hours (don't always need the 25)

- Can do on campus and off campus observation
- Lorena will send an email about the process (forms and confidentiality agreement needed etc.)
- Keep copies of your hours because they do not!

LORENA DOMINGUEZ - CSD UNDERGRADUATE ADVISOR

1. Do long range planning! - But for right now make an appointment to set up your classes for Spring, now until mid October and you will be entered for some prizes from the Comm. School.
2. Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE Program) - Great opportunity to work closely with a grad student
3. Research - Check out online what the professors are interested in.
