Howdy! My name is Alicia Mohundro. I am the academic advisor for the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences. I have a B.S. in Education from Sam Houston State University and a M.Ed. in Educational Administration from Texas A&M University. I taught 5th grade reading for 15 years as well as worked as an academic mentor for the Texas A&M University Athletic Department for the past 5 years. I loved working with students on achieving their academic goals, so in September of 2017, I moved into academic advising full time at Purdue University. I am passionate about helping students achieve their educational goals and graduate from Purdue University.
I am committed to having an advising space that is open and respectful where people from all walks of life feel valued and welcomed regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, cultures, and/or socio-economic status.
Here in the EAPS department, we have undergraduate majors in Atmospheric Science, Geology and Geophysics, Environmental Geoscience, Earth/Space Science Teaching, and Planetary Sciences. We have great student clubs; dedicated faculty; and great opportunities for undergraduate research, study abroad, field trips, etc., for our students!
