UNT Cares: College of Science Advising Office Announces New Initiatives for Student Community
The COS Advising Office is proud to announce several new interactive events and initiatives to keep our students motivated, academically supported, and actively involved in their community all semester long. One of these is a new project called the Proton Series, which gives students the opportunity to talk face to face with college leaders on an expert panel, from COS Student Ambassadors to prestigious researchers. There's also Level Up for Learning, a partnership with UNT's Learning Center to provide walk-in tutoring and workshops for success!
With these new opportunities also comes the Advising Office's Swipe for Swag initiative. Students who attend college-wide events endorsed by the Advising Office can swipe their ID for rewards. There will be a number of events throughout the Fall 2018 semester that qualify for a check-in, ranging from academic workshops to the aforementioned Q&A panels with our top students and faculty.
