Repost: Group Advising Chats week of July 17

Got questions in advance of the July 24-28 preregistration period?

We will host several group-advising, gBear Hangout Q & A sessions this week.  These will be online text-only "chat" opportunities to ask questions in a friendly, judgment-free forum.  Questions and answers will be archived into Frequently Asked Questions (with names removed!) and posted online for students who can't attend and/or want to review afterwards.  We have room for up to 50 students per chat, and you may attend more than one chat if space is available.

Please RSVP (directions below) if you want to participate in one or more of the following:
