• Advising at Lang

    All students newly admitted to Lang are assigned an academic advisor (a guidance counselor), a faculty advisor (a professor), and a peer advisor (an upper-level student). Your faculty advisor will be teaching one of your courses during your first semester and will serve as an academic mentor throughout your studies at Lang. Your peer advisor (called a First Year Fellow) will facilitate your transition to college and help you build important skills in a biweekly workshop. If you have questions about advising, please contact the Center for Student Success at 212.228.5100 x2264 or
