History and Social Studies Advising

Lauri Sue Torkelson (Wilson 301C) and Frank Hill (Wilson 301B) conduct all advising for the Department of History. They are normally available 8:00–11:30 a.m. and 1:00–4:00 p.m. Monday–Friday to assist with educational concerns and gladly accept walk-in students during those times. No appointment is necessary, except during pre-registration, which starts about the 8th week of each semester. If pre-registration advising is in session, students will need to sign up for an appointment time in Wilson-Short 301. Lauri Sue Torkelson can be reached at torkelson@wsu.edu or 509-335-4475 and Frank Hill can be reached at fhill002@wsu.edu or 509-335-5670 for assistance.

Academic Advising

Each semester students are required to meet with their advisor to plan for the next semester. Typically, advising is done in October for the following spring and in March for the following fall and summer.

Be sure to sign up for an appointment prior to your registration date and come to your advising appointment with a tentative schedule.

 

New for 2017-2018!

WSU’s History Department is collecting feedback from graduating seniors who majored in history about your experience in the program. Please take a few minutes to complete the History Department’s Senior Exit Survey using the link below. 

You should complete the survey if you are one semester away from graduating (i.e., scheduling your last advising appointment with your academic advisor). The survey is expected to take only 10-15 minutes to complete. 

Your thoughtful and honest answers will be considered carefully to help improve the undergraduate program and services offered by the History Department at WSU. Please note that your responses will not be associated with your personal identity. Rather, the data collected will be used to assess how well the History Department is achieving its program learning goals and outcomes. 

Thank you for supporting the department’s goals and responsibilities.
