The Boy Scouts of Online Advising

This morning, I decided I wanted to blog about my team of online advisors and what we’re up to this fall. We have so much planned to help make online learning a positive experience for every student – whether you are just considering an online program or already enrolled! And that got me thinking…

Did you know that we are the Boy Scouts of Online Advising? We totally are. And here’s why:Boy Scouts of America

  • We abide by Scout law to be: trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
  • We live the Scout motto: “Be prepared!”

Of our advising team of six (Kim, Laura, Nicole, Nikki, Scott and Tess), only Scott was actually a Boy Scout (an Eagle Scout, in fact). But in our roles as online advisors, we do strive to be everything a Boy Scout is. All of our daily work is meant to prepare YOU for a successful online learning experience.

And this fall, there is no shortage of eAdvising events planned for you to get prepared! There really is something for everyone, so join us in the fun! If a topic is missing that you would like covered, let us know.
