CGS Advising Experiences

CGS Students Talk Advising

Hear from current CGS students on their advising experiences! 


Mel Watkins has been very supportive of me. No matter if my issues were personal or school related, he has always been there to help me through my issues. He believed in me when I didn't believe in myself!! How do you ever say thank you to someone like Mel? He is what Pitt is all about! 

Awesome Mentor

I could not be more satisfied with my program in the College of General Studies! I also could not say enough good things about my advisor Krista Stokes, she is beyond helpful and has been an awesome mentor as well as an advisor for me during my studies within CGS.


Once I switched to CGS, I experienced the most welcoming attitude with my advisor Jessica Roscoe, whom showed sincere concern to help me find the program I wanted to be able to complete. 

Easy and Clear

My advisor outlined everything that I needed to know in order to complete my program of study in just two years, and after taking about a year off school prior to enrolling, I have to say that she could not have made things more clear or easy than she did.
