Melissa Layton

Director of Academic Advising


While I have been a part of the USF community for over 15 years, always working with students, I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with new students. Advising, for me, is highly relational—a chance for students to learn more about themselves and make their own decisions. I have been working with college students almost every year since I graduated college myself. This is in part because I think college experience is a thrilling and transformational one for students. I want to help students in their transition to USF and to help them understand and make the most of their own experience.
