Advisor of the Year 2018

Professor Bruce Campbell

Professor Bruce Campbell is the 2018 Advisor of the Year.

Student Quote: "He has been an invaluable resource this year. Without him, I really wouldn't have known where to start with choosing courses, and his suggestions have had a major impact on my plans for the future. He also has been extremely helpful in figuring out study abroad options and making sure I am on track to graduate. Most importantly, he has always been friendly, and he takes the time to check in with how I'm doing in general, not just academically. I always leave his office feeling more at ease and more confident than when I went in."
