Operated by and for students studying foreign languages at CSUSB, the advising center represents a unique academic advising approach. FLAGS peer advisors work with faculty in the World Languages and Literatures department to provide accurate and timely information to students concerning registration, classes, planning their major, transcript review, graduate record checks and other critical advising information. Students gain experience in the fields and professions that they are studying, and, by interacting with other students. The advisors get a flavor for a potential career in teaching.
