Please review your Advising Guide, and come with a list of questions prepared.
If you were given a Fashion Business or Fashion Design Worksheet at a prior advising appointment, please keep that worksheet and bring with it you to your next meeting.

To assist you in planning your courses and sequencing, please review the proposed Four-Year Plans listed in the right-hand column under adivising.
