Majors in chemistry are not assigned an advisor. We encourage you to meet with any faculty advisor that works with your schedule and know that you can see someone different each time you make an appointment (or of course, see the same person if you would like). The exception to this would be if you have a petition or need to make an exception to the program requirements, then you need to meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Chemistry.
