In past semesters, we have used a separate queue for virtual advising. Even though we will be conducting drop-in advising in person this year, we will continue to post weekly in-person advising hours and updates on the online queue page. In special cases like campus closure, inclement weather, or unforeseen personal circumstances, there might be times throughout the year in which we will again utilize the online queue to host virtual appointments.
