As fall semester kicks off, we bring you the top 5 things to know about the College of Education
Whether it’s finding your academic advisor or just finding some lunch, there are some tricks to daily life at the University of Georgia College of Education. We took the top five questions most often asked of our Office of Student Services and answered them below. Have another tip? Tweet at us or send us a picture on instagram tagging @UGAcoe
5. Find your advisor
One of your most important allies during your college years is your academic advisor. Undergraduates in the College of Education will see advisors in the Office of Student Services (Room 122), except for kinesiology majors — there are advisors for those degree programs in the Ramsey Center.
4. … But graduate students are different
Instead of coming to the Office of Student Services for academic advising, graduate students are advised within their departments, either with a staff advisor or with a faculty member.
3. At some point you might need a notary
And we’ve got that covered. The Office of Student Services has multiple staff members who are notaries, so when you’re looking to get that state form finalized, drop by the office and someone can help you out.
2. We have food! And a library!
See the door near the newspaper racks, underneath the stairs behind Aderhold Hall? That’s the entrance to Bone Appetit, a small cafe run by UGA Food Services. Along with vending machines, during the day you’ll find a variety of hot and cold foods, plus drinks and snacks.
And on the second floor of Aderhold is the Curriculum Materials Library. Renovated over the past summer, it features thousands of books for all ages, as well as teaching materials and fun extras, like puppets, to help you tell an entertaining story or work with kids.
1. The ground floor is not the first floor
We hear you — this part is confusing. But when you walk up to the front entrance of Aderhold —coming from Carlton Street — you are entering on the ground floor, home to the dean’s office, business offices, and one classroom. But if you are coming in from the back side, near the parking lot, you are entering on the first floor — or come up the outdoor stairs and you’ll enter on the second floor.
Got it? Good. Now you’re ready to hit the books. Good luck!
