About me

Hey Students! My name is Chris Yang, born and raised here in Minnesota. I currently reside in Brooklyn Park, MN. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my three kids, and I watch and participate in sports. I love all sports, but my big three are football, soccer, and basketball.

I was a first-generation college student and a TRIO SSS participant in the College of Education and Human Development. I completed my undergraduate degree in CEHD with a youth studies BS and then completed a master of science in higher education leadership and administration online at Capella University.

I am excited to return to CEHD and help students navigate through their academic journey as an academic advisor. Before coming to CEHD, I was an academic advisor in the College of Liberal Arts. I also have experience in higher education at Normadale Community College and Augsburg University.

Drop-in advising

Drop-in advising is available over Zoom. Check with your advisor for their weekly availability.

Drop-in advising is usually limited to a 10 to 15 minute session. Students needing more time should schedule a 30 minute appointment by calling Student Services at 612-625-3339.

Example of issues for drop-in advising

  • Review of classes and class schedule
  • APAS review and updates
  • Petition discussions
  • Signatures for academic forms
  • Short Q&A
  • General discussion
  • Non-academic topics (such as time management, connecting on campus, etc.)
