Welcome Back Email
Consider sending a welcome back e-mail to new and returning advisees at the beginning of the term. Students are more likely to develop a positive relationship with academic advisors when they received some form of personalized communication from the advisor. Make notes to remember personalized information about each advisee (such as hobbies, family details, and so on) and mention them in your individualized communication with advisees.
