Undergraduate Advising Directors for Student-Athletes are housed in the Athletic Academic Resource Center (AARC) and are the primary undergraduate advising contact for varsity student-athletes. Your UADs for Student-Athletes are full-time, professional staff within the Office of Academic Advising who partner closely with colleagues across campus to provide a comprehensive network of support that promotes a student’s academic success and furthers his or her intellectual goals.
