Sometimes you have a specific question about your major, for one of your professors, or for your advisor.  But maybe your professor/advisor isn’t responding to your email, or you don’t know where to find him/her.  The best place to start is often at the main office for your major.  They often know where to find people, how to get messages to people, and then can often answer your questions and/or tell you what the process is to do what you want to do.  Looking to change your major?  Want to drop a class?  Want to declare a minor?  Start here!
