Advising is a priority in the Department of Geography. Undergraduate majors receive assistance from both a professional staff advisor and an assigned faculty advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to be active participants in our geography community through co-curricular organizations, research, and department-sponsored speakers and events.
Undergraduate advising in geography is the primary reponsibility of a full-time staff member, Jodi Vender. Jodi can assist current and prospective students with entry-to-major, scheduling, degree audits, and other academic issues.
Students whose primary major is geography also have an official faculty advisor; check the Penn State Academic Advising Portal to find your assigned advisor.
