Faculty Advisors

Advisors welcome the opportunity to answer questions concerning educational and career planning, and how economics fits into both. Faculty advisors are available for consultation during weekday office hours and by appointment. For questions concerning specific college rules and regulations, students should see the main department office or the College Center for Advising Services.

As always, the best thing is to check each week at tiny.cc/RizzoHours for updates and additional hours and locations as my schedule is in a bit of flux. For now I will meet at my office (236 Harkness), but we will be meeting outside at the picnic tables on the Meliora patio when the weather permits.
