If you are a BYU Idaho student and you don’t know what classes to take, internship to do, or if you are just completely lost in life, you have access to one of the best resources on campus: the academic discovery center. The academic discovery center helps students with their academic and career goals.
We are very grateful for the students at BYU Idaho. We recognize that they are marvelous and its a real privilege to serve them and we try and hire in a manner that we find people who are detail oriented who have what I call servant hearts who really care about helping people.
You know, I have never gone to the academic discovery center and have not had my questions answered.
The most satisfying advising experience we have is when a student just is a deer in the headlights and then overtime because of taking advantage of the services we provide here they feel really great about moving forward and they know what the next steps are.
So yeah, the academic discovery center helped me to find where to go when I wanted to start studying biology. They actually told me to take a class on campus the career explorations class that really helped decide what i wanted to do. I want to be an eye doctor.
While most students have a positive experience at the academic discovery center, some do not but the academic discovery center is doing something for that too.
We want to know about their negative experience. We send out a survey to every single student that comes in. What I would recommend is that they fill out the survey because if they have a negative experience and they want to talk about it we call, we literally contact through email or phone call every single one of those students. So the last message would be come see us, come talk to us, come tell us what your needs are and we will do a level best to help you.
