Undergraduate Advising

Welcome to the Kinesiology Advising homepage. 

We are happy to have the opportunity to work with you regarding your academic and career plans.  If your last name begins with A-K, Cassie Meinert will be your Academic Advisor.  If your last name begins with L-Z, Amy O’Neill will be your Academic Advisor.  Our role is to assist you with registration and class selection, provide you with information about campus resources, discuss career interests and help prepare you for life beyond the University of Illinois.
 
Our office is currently located in 120 Freer Hall.  We can be reached via email at cmeinert@illinois.edu (Cassie) or aroneill@illinois.edu (Amy) or via phone at 217-333-2461.  Kinesiology students receive news about exciting opportunities and important deadlines through a weekly e-newsletter, Kinesiology Advising Announcements.  Pre-registration appointments are mandatory for all Kinesiology students, but you may schedule meetings with advisors throughout the year via email.
