Welcome to Brescia’s Undergraduate Academic Advisement Center
Academic Advising at Brescia provides assistance to students through support and guidance relating to university policies, degree requirements, and various campus support services. Our goal is to empower students to make effective decisions relating to their academics and future career goals. Academic Advising is responsive to student needs and often involves continuous contact between student and advisor.
Our UCTL Professional Academic Advisor helps undergraduates understand the BU’s academic systems, choose a major, and discover campus resources. The advising partnership ensures that support, feedback, and opportunities for reflection are part of the Brescia experience.
We are here to help you:
- Plan your academic program.
- Take responsibility for your learning and goal setting.
- Implement strategies for achieving your goals.
- Provide referrals to academic and personal support resources.
The Sophomore Peer Mentor Program (SPMP)
The Sophomore Peer Mentor Program (SPMP) is designed to connect sophomores with upperclassmen and women to provide sophomores with both resources and encouragement to continue a successful path to their graduation and professional choices. The upperclassmen/women function as peer mentors and role models.

The Transfer Peer Mentor Program (TPMP)
The Transfer Peer Mentor Program (TPMP) is designed to connect new transfer students with currently enrolled transfer students who function as a transfer peer mentor. While many transfer students come to Brescia with college experience, the TPMP program helps new transfers to acclimate to the university as they become part of our Brescia family.

As the Professional Advisor in UCTL, I am able to offer Academic Coaching for freshmen athletes-- as well as for any non-athlete freshmen. Academic Coaching can be one of two ways:
Face-to-face in my office: Safe protocol is practiced; in addition, students sit behind a plexi-glass shield.
Virtual through Zoom: All coaching material can be shared virtually in order to accommodate any student not on campus.
