NSCS Admissions, Advising,
"Hello, Neuroscience and Cognitive Science community! My name is Amye Chaparro and I am genuinely excited to serve you as an Academic Advisor. I am a University of Arizona alumna with a degree in Psychology. During my undergraduate career, my Academic Advisor served as a pillar of hope and guidance as I navigated the University system as a first-generation student. They provided vital resources and direction when I needed it most, and I hope to be as much service to you! I truly believe diversity and inclusivity is paramount to the ongoing success of the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program. I will make it my personal mission to put you first and educate myself continuously on the issues that surround our community and help to make it a safe and inclusive environment. With that being said, my door is always open. A little about me, I enjoy a little bit of everything that pushes me outside of my comfort zone. I have dabbled in rock climbing, road cycling, and recently took up mountain biking! My proudest achievements have been backpacking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon twice, and traversing down South Kaibab, to the river, and up Bright Angel Trail in one day! My pride and joy is my dog, Rogue. She is adventurous and constantly keeps me on my toes."
"Hello Neuroscience and Cognitive Science students! My name is Collin Stout, I am looking forward to working with you as an Academic Advisor during your time at the University. I hail from Buffalo, New York, where I received my bachelor’s degree in Childhood Education and my master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs. I’ve been an advisor for about five years now, I began my career advising at the University of South Carolina, then moved on to a small liberal arts school called Hilbert College in Buffalo before making my way to the University of Arizona. As a student I changed my major five times and had a wide array of academic advisors. As your advisor I’m determined to help you achieve your personal, professional, and educational goals while you are here. We will work together and make sure you are getting the most out of your time here by the time you graduate. Outside of work I enjoy playing music, sports (Go Bills!), writing, reading, hiking, running, and I also crochet. I’m truly excited to get to know you, my door is always open so please stop by any time, or email at any time."
