Quantitative Finance & Mathematics Major
Hi everybody! I am Xiao Song, an international student from China. I am a junior with a double major in quantitative finance and mathematics. I am the president of Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) and have worked in the Leader of International Networking and Knowledge (LINKer) program for almost a year. This semester, I am excited to begin a brand new experience as a Madison Advising Peer!
Madison Advising Peers are JMU students who care about their peers and work in conjunction with academic advisors to help students achieve their academic goals. As a member of the MAPs, I provide supplemental academic advising services that include and are not limited to: creating 4-year plans, assisting with registering for classes, helping students understand their transfer credits, educating students on general academic questions, presenting academic advising workshops, and connecting students with appropriate referral locations. Outside of the MAP office, I also host informative workshops once a semester for CSSA and incorporate the knowledge I have gained from my MAPs training sessions.
Our office has moved from Wilson to Roop Hall 201! Please come visit us anytime between 10am-5pm Monday through Thursday and 10am to 3:30pm on Friday. No appointments necessary. Let us point you in the right direction!
