Spring 2016 Advising

Study Cards for the Spring 2016 semester are due at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 29, 2016, and all current concentrators MUST meet with Martin Samuels to discuss their plan of study, otherwise a hold will be placed on your registration. Martin is hosting open* office hours for students on the following days and times:

* NOTE: Due to the number of students Martin needs to meet, please limit discussion to course selection only during this time. If you want to talk to him about anything else, please email a list with 3-4 blocks of time when you are available and his assistant will use that information to schedule a meeting.

The entrance can be hard to find. Use the map and directions below, or these Google Maps coordinates. The entrance is across the courtyard from the entrance to the Fairchild building. From the Science Center, walk down Kirkland Street and take a left onto the Cabot Way footpath (if you see Quincy Street on your left, you’ve gone too far). As you walk down Cabot Way, you’ll eventually see bike racks and a doorway set in a large glass facade—this is the entrance you want.
