Have you ever tried putting something together without bothering to read the instructions? You think you’re saving time. Then you realize the frame’s upside down and there’re four important-looking pieces left on the floor.

Your student will meet their first academic advisor at class registration. They’ll work together to build a first-semester schedule that incorporates your student’s interests and goals, considers their prior education, and aligns with how they want to get involved on and off campus. 

University Ministries

My experience as a student at Nebraska Wesleyan was a time of discovery. I took psychology, advertising and German classes, and I was active in campus ministry. All these experiences, in and outside the classroom, shaped me. Each discovery led me to a vocation as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. And now, I’m returning to NWU with a new role as university minister.
