Advisor Advice
Hello, I'm Mike Saldana and I am the CHP Student Services Director.
When I'm not attending GVSU football games and cheering on the Lakers, you can find me CHS ready to help students. Here is my Advisor Advice for the Fall Semester. Plan ahead! Early in the semester is the perfect time to start figuring out when assignments/quizzes/tests are taking place and how much time you'll need to prepare. Figure our which planning tool works best for you (white board, planner, apps, etc.), and start planning out your free time so you're prepared.
