Snapshots from the 2017 UF Advising Conference!

Over 135 academic advisors attended the 11th Annual UF Advising Conference on January 30. UF alumnae Brandon Telg and Jaron Jones, co-founders of Self Narrate, served as the keynote speakers for the event, watched through the story development process and discussed how storytelling can be useful in advising.
