Neighborhood Advisors are housed in each Engagement Center across campus. They assist students with adjusting to university life, guide students in the selection of a major, facilitate and support academic skill building, and make appropriate referrals to enable students to take advantage of other resources and services the university offers. Neighborhood Advisors' efforts are intended to promote self-sufficiency, self-responsibility and self-development which will enable students to achieve academic, career and life goals long after their days on the MSU campus have passed.
Students who declare major preferences are assigned to academic advisors in the colleges of their major preferences. However, the services and professional advisors in the NSSC are also available to these students.
