<div>[MUSIC PLAYING] The academic advising process at Spartanburg Methodist is quite unique. We meet with students from day one and begin to develop a comprehensive plan not only for them academically, but also for long-term career-wise with them we do. </div><div><br></div><div>My advisors are always available to me. They have specific office hours, but you can also contact them for an appointment to meet with them personally. They're always available, and they're always willing to help. </div><div><br></div><div>Faculty are the best economic advisors, because we have been through the process, both not only as faculty, but also as students ourselves. We've been to a lot of school, and the fact of the matter is, we teach the classes, so we kind of know what the classes are and what they are not, and we can answer a lot of the students' questions. Being able to help them understand not only what they need to do but how the process works is really beneficial for them. </div><div><br></div><div>Having my own personal advisor, I get to connect with him and know him, and he can help me decide what the best classes are for me. It has given me an easier path to success. </div>
