Jones, Elnetta Griffin; And Others
This guidebook, a resource for both college academic advisers and advisees, is designed to assist the undeclared student attending Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania in the decision making process of selecting a major area of study with attention to the question: How do I want to live my life? The guidebook first presents an overview of the Division of Undeclared Majors at the university. The next two adviser-oriented chapters discuss what academic advising entails and provide tips on how to make the advisement process more effective. These are followed by two student-oriented chapters on how to manage time and effective strategies and tactics for career planning. The guidebook next presents the school's academic policies and procedures, followed by a description of campus resources for student financial aid, career development, information sources, learning assistance, and counseling. The labor marketplace for the 1990s is reviewed next, highlighting the most promising careers. Finally, the guidebook lists the university's undergraduate programs, discusses the general education program, and then lists the general requirements and elective courses for each of the school's colleges: Arts and Sciences; Business; and Education and Human Services. An appendix lists the academic faculty and administration. Contains a 34-item bibliography and an index. (GLR)
