How does Zoom drop-in advising work?

We will open the Zoom meeting at the scheduled times noted above. Once you click on the link you will remain in the wait room (our virtual queue) until your turn. We will see students one at a time on a first-come, first-served basis. You are welcome to work while you wait, but keep your meeting screen open so you are aware when it’s your turn. Please be prepared in advance with your questions, so we can help as many students as possible.
