Have a quick question?

The OCPD has designated drop-in hours every day from 12:00 – 2:00 PM.  Drop-in hours offer students 10-minute meetings to get answers to quick or time sensitive questions - no appointment necessary!  On Mondays, drop-ins are held on the Bricks, in front of the Student Lounge.  Tuesday through Friday drop-in advising is available inside the OCPD. 

Need to have a Resume, Cover Letter or other Job Application Document reviewed? 

Send the Word version to your assigned advisor.  If you are unsure of your assigned advisor, or if you are an alum, please email for assistance.
