We’re still here for you. Each week we’ll feature a CALS Advisor who’s working remotely and looking forward to connecting with you via alternative methods!
Q: What is your name, title, and unit – and where (+ with who) are you surfing?
A: I’m Ryan Zavodnik and am a Transitional Advisor in CALS Academic Affairs Office. I am surfing with my wife on our honeymoon in Trujillo, Peru.
Q: What is your job in CALS?
A: I support CALS undecided students’ and transfer students’ academic success through degree planning, study strategy enhancement, career exploration and more!
Q: How can students connect with you remotely?
A: Find me on Starfish to schedule a virtual appointment (phone or video). For quick questions, feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What is your favorite thing about CALS?
A: As not only a CALS employee, but also a CALS graduate (Dietetics), I may be a little biased towards CALS! 🙂 Everyone involved in CALS, from faculty to students, are all invested in positively impacting real-world problems. While CALS only has 23 majors, what is learned both in and out of the classroom equips students to analyze and affect ecosystems, food systems, climate, economic and community development, etc. There is something truly special about a college where you get to know not only your classmates, but also your professors.
Q: What have become some of your favorite social distancing hobbies?
A: I love staying busy and active. I go for walks every day and have recently taken on remodeling my basement. When I’m not working on my laptop or keeping myself occupied, I love to try new things when cooking and cuddling with my 3 cats.
