Hi, thank you for organizing this meeting. I would like to know how to choose from all these wonderful opportunities on campus while still being able to excel in our classes?
Hazha Abdullah
35:21
I have a hard time choosing what to participate in
Amanda Catron (she/her)
36:03
We'll talk privately!

lol, true

You keep mentioning Faculty Advisor. Are you referring to the instructor for the class you're taking? Or a mentor external to everything to help you with questions or issues?
Amanda Catron (she/her)
42:22
Hi James, a faculty advisor is your internal mentor that is in charge of advising your capstone/thesis/dissertation.
James McCrary
43:01
Will this be discussed and assigned during Orientation?
Amanda Catron (she/her)
43:05
If this is your first semester, you may not have one yet. And that's okay! Your program orientation should review this! If you have further questions about this, feel free to email me at catron@ufl.edu
Amanda Catron (she/her)
43:18
Usually you pick your own faculty advisor based on your research interests!
James McCrary
43:47
Interesting. Awesome, thank you!
Amanda Catron (she/her)
43:56
Asking someone to be your thesis or dissertation chair is almost like proposing! In my program, Linguistics, we picked the chair of our dissertation after we completed Comprehensive Exams (so beginning of year 2).
Amanda Catron (she/her)
44:24
It depends on your program! Ask your graduate coordinator and students already in the program to get more information! :)

Amanda Catron (she/her)

Also, you're probably normal :) You aren't alone!
Nicole Weingart
