Week of June 3rd, 2019 

"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go;
they merely determine where you start."
- Nido Qubein


Starting at the beginning of June, we will start sending this newsletter bi-weekly for the summer. Once the fall semester starts, we will start sending it weekly again. 

Have questions about professional school and need support? 
We still are here to advise you over the summer! 
If you are a current CSU student or an alumni, you can schedule a health professions advising appointment online through Navigate here. If you are not within driving distance of Fort Collins, and would like this to be a phone appointment, please write “PHONE APPOINTMENT” and include the best number to reach you in the appointment comments when you schedule your appointment. The advisor will call you at your scheduled time (MST). If you ARE within driving distance of Fort Collins, please schedule an in-person appointment.
