Students are required to meet with their Academic Adviser once a semester during their first year at Appalachian, but more frequent meetings are encouraged. Students are urged to see their Academic Adviser anytime academic concerns arise. Students can make an appointment through their Appalnet account (appointments are required during registration advising in October-November and March-April). During other times students are encouraged to drop in to see the Watauga Adviser, Holly Ambler. The Watauga Academic Adviser's office is located in the Living Learning Center on the first floor, office 116.


The mission of advising in the Watauga Residential College is to empower students to take ownership of their education through inquiry based advising that encourages an experiential learning approach to academic planning. Students work with their Watauga advisor to develop an understanding of the meaning of their education. Advising in Watauga is a cooperative effort between advisor and student that consists of the development of the whole person.
