Hello Math and Data Science Majors,

Welcome to the Fall 2023 semester! I want to welcome all our new students for the fall semester and all our returning students as well. I hope this fall semester is a good one for all of us.

The start of any semester can be an exciting and anxious time as you begin to feel out your classes. Your course instructors, my fellow advisors, and I are here to help, but we can be very busy with many requests for help. Your best option to get help from my fellow advisors and I is to schedule a meeting rather than sending an email. Drop-in advising hours are a good option too if you have quick questions, and the drop-in advising hours in the College of Arts and Sciences are run via Zoom. Here is information about my advising schedule for the Fall 2023 semester.

Fall 2023 Advising
I am taking in-person, Zoom, and phone meetings in 45-minute blocks from 8:30 am to 12:15 pm and 1:15 pm to 5:00 pm every weekday when I am not taking Zoom drop-in advising meetings. I am also take Zoom drop-in advising meetings on Wednesdays and Fridays at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Zoom drop-in meetings are being coordinated by the College of Arts and Sciences with a schedule and a link to the Zoom room available at

You can schedule a meeting with me by using the Student Success Hub via this link, by calling the College of Arts and Sciences Academic and Career Advising Center at 402-472-4190, by calling me at 402-472-4319, or by emailing me at You can find instructions for how to access and schedule meetings in the Student Success Hub system here.

If Zoom drop-in hours or a scheduled meeting will not work, then sending an email is your best bet. It is always best to knock on my door (or someone else's) before coming in.

Best wishes, Doug
