The following populations are advised by Norse Advising:
Peer Coaches provide peer-to-peer support by meeting with first year students to help with their transition to college. They focus on all aspects of how to be a successful student, from study skills to setting goals. All Peer Coaches are Junior or Senior students at NKU who have cultivated a successful college experience for themselves and wish to share how they did it. All first-time students are encouraged to make appointments with a Peer Coach. Norse Advising students are required to meet with their Peer Coach. Peer Coaches are also available for drop-in meetings.
Undecided Norse Advising students work one-on-one with their academic advisor for major exploration and course selection assistance. Norse Advising uses Meta Majors as an advising tool to help with the major exploration process. Meta Majors help students intentionally explore majors within their interest areas. Our students also enroll in UNV 101. This course is designed to help students explore majors and develop skills to be successful in college.
Norse Advising is also home to the Pathfinder program. This program requires students to complete multiple steps to help them to be successful. This includes attending monitored study tables, taking UNV 101, attending workshops, and meeting with their advisors and peer coaches. Once these requirements are met, students graduate from the program equipped with the tools needed to succeed at NKU. Students are placed in this program by having multiple admission deficiences.
This program offers resources to faculty and staff advisors regarding basic and advanced advising strategies and techniques, legal issues related to advising, the technologies associated with advising, academic policies, and specific curriculum requirements.The program will facilitate and foster collaboration between academic advisors and campus departments, creating a network of advising resources for faculty and staff who participate in the program. Faculty and staff who participate in the Master Advisor Program will be equipped with the resources to serve as academic advising leaders in their home departments.
