  • Assistance in setting up an appointment with a John R. Lewis Advisor
  • Identifying campus resources

Our in-person front desk is managed by our Peer Advisers. They are also available Monday through Friday via Google Chat for any quick questions!

Zoom Drop-In Advising

Visit us during our Zoom Drop-In Hours for quick express advising meetings with a John R. Lewis Advisor. Once you join the Zoom Meeting, you will be placed in a virtual waiting room until our Peer Advisor is able to greet you. From there, they will ask you how we can support you and connect you with an available College Advisor.

This is a first-come basis service and the wait time can vary during our busiest times in the quarter.

Spring 2024 Hours (April 2nd - June 12th): Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:30pm-3:30pm PST.

(Last student is seen 15 minutes before the end of Drop-In.)
