Advising

In order to put together a solid plan to finish a degree, advising is critical. Advisors in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences are among the best resources on campus. In fact, they consistently win awards for the quality of advising they provide. Virginia Tech is a big university, but advisers make it seem like a small town where everyone knows everyone else.

Student advising is handled within the student's major department. Departmental advisers are listed below. Future students who know which department they are interested in should contact that department's adviser directly.
