Hi there!  My name is Terri Miller and I’m so excited to help you through your Sixth College experience.  UCSD is an excellent school and I hope that we can form a partnership to help you navigate the many opportunities that will be available to you here. 

Prior to coming to UCSD, I earned a BA in Communication Studies/Media Studies and an MS in Higher Education, both from schools on the east coast, and with my education, I bring a wealth of knowledge about new student orientation, residence life, student affairs, living-learning communities, athletic academic advising, and recruitment.  I love working on a college campus and wholeheartedly believe in holistic student development – that your college experience is equally affected by both your in-class and out of class experiences.  I chose academic advising specifically for the impact that I am able to have on students.   It’s my way of paying it forward! When I’m not academic advising you Sixers, I’m teaching Zumba at a local gym, walking my dog Stevie Wonder, or cooking up new creations in my kitchen. 

To quote Dr. Seuss:  “Today you are you, that is truer than true.  There is no one alive who is youer than you”.  As you make your way through college, discover who you are and who you want to be.  Use your college experience to help you shape the best version of yourself through studying hard, building meaningful relationships, and seeking out opportunities that make you shine.  These four years will be the practice field for the game of life.  Live every moment to the fullest!
