Advising

Richard Light’s book "Making The Most Of College" highlights important points to ponder for undergraduate education. Two are particularly noteworthy: First, the majority of students polled say that moments that changed them in a profound way occurred outside of the classroom. Second, students feel that solid, more personalized advising is the single most underestimated feature of a great college experience.

Toward this end, HSCRB offers undergraduate students advising opportunities throughout their undergraduate years. Dr. Bill Anderson, who serves as the advisor for HDRB, is available to discuss a variety of concerns, including:

• Course selection
• Concentration requirements
• Finding a laboratory
• Undergraduate research funding
• Issues arising outside of formal academics

To schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Anderson, please email Lisa Fountain (Program Coordinator for HDRB) at lisa_fountain@harvard.edu or call her at 617-495-4106.

Directions To Dr. Anderson's Office:

Enter Sherman Fairchild Biochemistry Building (outlined in Yellow and labeled "Fairchild" below) via the courtyard entrance. Proceed straight across the lobby and enter the administrative suite through the wooden door (labeled G55-G61). Walk through the administrative suite, turning left at the cubicles. Dr. Anderson's office (G-55) is located at the end of the short hallway.
