Welcome to L&S Advising!

Greetings, Berkeley students. The Office of Undergraduate Advising, with a staff of highly skilled and experienced College Advisers, is here to help you make the best choices for your academic career and get the most out of your time at Berkeley. We encourage you to seek our advice in your first two years at Berkeley; however, you are welcome to ask for advice throughout your college career. As a student in L&S, you can explore the almost limitless possibilities of a liberal arts education, but you will also be expected to meet high standards of student responsibility essential for success at Berkeley.
