Faculty Mentors

Faculty mentors are assigned to each student with Astronomy as their major. Check with the Academic Office if you do not know who your mentor is and the staff will be able to help you. Astronomy majors are recommended to meet with their mentors as they can be a valuable source of information and support for more general matters, and a reference for scholarships, job applications, graduate school, etc. Please see the list of Undergraduate Faculty Mentors below:
