The University Advising Center will guide pre-major students as they navigate through the undergraduate curriculum to maximize their academic experience at Southern Methodist University. The UAC advisors help students to recognize and pursue their passions; challenge students to set realistic and rewarding academic and life goals; and empower students to think and act creatively and independently.
Working Together for Student Success: A Parent’s Role
At Southern Methodist University, we recognize that parents and families play important roles in the academic success of our students. As advisors, we also know that this is a time of transition and changing relationships within your family dynamic. Your child is becoming more independent and making important decisions that will impact his or her future. By keeping the lines of communication open, parents can provide their students with supportive guidance, helping them to successfully navigate this time of self-discovery and intellectual growth.
