In order to make an appointment, please fill out the link below and someone from the Office of Student Life will contact you. Appointments must be made by 4:30 pm on the Tuesday or Thursday, the day before your appointment.  Please note, if the dates and times listed above do not work for your schedule or if you have any questions, please feel free to email us at
