Welcome New Psychology Advisors!

There were some changes in the Advising Office this summer! We are sad to lose Leigh Mascolino and Ashley Sweaney to their exciting new positions at the College of Pharmacy and Columbus State Community College, respectively. But we searched all over for the best advisors to replace them. And we are lucky to have found two fantastic advisors! Brooke Enderle-Pontious and Alison Baker will be training for several weeks and will start seeing students in October. If you aren't sure who your advisor is, please contact our office at (614) 292-5750 or and we will be happy to help you.
