BARUCH COLLEGE–With over 16,000 students enrolled at Baruch College, students know the horror stories when it comes to registering for classes — especially the core classes that can be extremely competitive to get into. 

Along with the stress of registration comes the stress of long waits at the academic advisement office, located on the fifth floor of the Newman Vertical Campus. However, earlier last month, advisement changed its walk-in policy to appointment-based visits only. It is now mandatory for students to have an appointment to be seen by an adviser.
