The main office of the department and most faculty offices are located in McAlester Hall. McAlester Hall is on 6th Street, just south of Peace Park on the MU campus. The Advising Office is located in room 100 McAlester Hall. (Note: McAlester Hall is not the same as the Psychology Building. The Psychology Building is on 7th Street across the street from the Heinkel Building.)

Walking directions from Jesse Hall: Face the columns, with your back to Jesse Hall. Walk LEFT around the Quad. You will pass Laferre Hall (Engineering) and Switzler Hall. After you pass Switzler, turn immediately LEFT. (If you pass the Geology Building, you have gone too far!) Follow the sidewalk down the hill. You'll see McAlester Hall at the bottom of the hill. Go in the left entrance, up one flight of stairs, through the doors and turn left. You'll see the Advising Office on your left (100 McAlester Hall). Need help? Call (573) 884-3811, and we'll help you!
