Automated advising

I have considered the faculty-led, individual advising in our program here to be one of its greatest strengths. Between complex, dynamic schedules, and difficult life decisions, there is a lot of ground to cover. So it is with disappointment, but not surprise, that I read about the new online advising algorithms. Another sure way to keep students from asking faculty questions, hearing answers they don't want to hear, and prevent them from developing relationships that would be useful in an advising/life emergency.
