Faculty Advisers

Your faculty adviser will be your primary source of academic guidance for your first year (BSE) or first and second years (AB). Your adviser knows not only his or her field, but also the general requirements of a Princeton undergraduate education, and can help you navigate the Princeton curriculum, plan according to your own ambitions, and take advantage of special opportunities. 

You’ll meet with your adviser each term before course enrollment, but make sure you see your adviser at other times of the term too! Contact your adviser if you'd like to drop or add a course, if you think you might need academic support, or if you'd like to discuss the pros and cons of different majors, study abroad, or research.  Also take advantage of your adviser’s office hours and advising meals at New College West to chat informally. It's worth investing some time to build this relationship; after all, the better your adviser knows you, the more able he or she will be to advise you!

Dean Wagner and the Assistant Dean for Studies also provide academic advising for all New College West students. Call the New College West office at 609-258-3629 to set up an appointment.
