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.

What peer advisors do

Peer advisors are academic leaders on campus who work closely with academic deans, college advisors and directors of academic engagement to create programming that helps expose you to all that Duke offers. They are available via email, Facebook and for individual meetings, and they regularly sponsor events in East Campus dorms and neighborhoods.
