WELCOME TO COLLEGE ACADEMIC COUNSELING!
We hope these pages will help you find the information you need, but they’re not a substitute for real academic advising. So we’d also like to invite you to come in and meet with one of our academic advisors or College Academic Mentors to help you get the most out of your undergraduate experience at UCLA.
Your college career is more than just taking classes – it’s also learning more about yourself, the world, where you want to be, and what you want to do. It’s about growing and developing, and becoming scholars and leaders. And while UCLA offers hundreds of amazing classes, we also offer other opportunities for you to prepare yourself for the future. It’s more than just a liberal arts education that will provide a broad knowledge of our globe. Your general education and other classes will teach you skills that will be invaluable in your future after UCLA – skills like critical thinking and analysis, problem solving, collaboration and teamwork, public speaking, effective writing and communication, and logical thinking.
What you learn at UCLA, both in and out of the classroom, can teach you about complexity, diversity, and change. UCLA can help you to grow as leaders and activists, researchers and writers, entrepreneurs and innovators, and whatever you want to be, if you let it. I encourage you to be open: explore your potential and allow yourself the opportunity to thrive.
You’ll get out of college what you put into it. Are you interested in getting the most out of UCLA? Do you want to be prepared for life after UCLA? Let us help you navigate your way through your college career and get ready for life after college . Come by and see us!
