Peer Advisor

Each year, experienced students volunteer to serve as peer advisors to first- and second-year students, offering the perspective of someone who has been where you are now. Peer advisors can share with you how they formed meaningful mentoring relationships with faculty, assist you in navigating online registration and help you learn to distinguish what is merely popular from what is individually meaningful to you.
