U-M SSW is a big place, and U-M itself is huge. With a big (huge!) campus, comes big (huge!) bureaucracy. Expecting this can actually help you as you maneuver through it.
- View your faculty advisor as a partner to help you navigate your way. They may not always know the answer, but they can sure help you find one. Let them know if/when you're feeling overwhelmed by it all. They can help.
- Your technical advisor (Antuan) is here to help with anything course related. Petitions problems, independent study questions, substitutions... these can all go to your TA.
- Be sure to rely on each other. Use your Slack channels to connect with colleagues. It is likely that someone else has answers - or at least support - to offer.
