Advising

Advising Resources  

NOTE: For the 2016-2017 Academic Year, I am on sabbatical and will be back-and-forth between Penn State and Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) in Washington. I will only be available intermittently and largely limited to e-mail/gChat. In the interim, please contact Andrew Zydney for your advising needs. Be sure to make use of the below resources related to Undergraduate opportunities, scholarship opportunities, and the Honors program.

Advising Appointments
For a general engineering advising appointment, use the Appointment Request System
For advising from Dr. Curtis, use the following guidelines:
  1. For quick questions, you may gChat him using biomole360[at]gmail.com.
  2. For 'slow' questions, do one of the following:
    1. Send your detailed yet succinct questions to the aforementioned or his official PSU e-mail and copy april.hile[at]curtislab.org to assure you get a (reasonably) timely response.
    2. Request an appointment per his availability and procedure HERE
  3. Things that will be rendered generally ineffective:
    1. Drop by unannounced whenever it is convenient for YOU.
    2. E-mail his official Penn State e-mail without CCing April (she gets 20+ e-mails a day; he gets 300... feel free to try your odds)
    3. Leave a phone voicemail; they are very intermittently checked (noting that voicemail goes to 300+/day e-mail!!!).
