Peer Advisors

Peer advisors are student 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. Peer advisors can share how they formed meaningful mentoring relationships with faculty, help you navigate online registration, and help you learn to distinguish what is merely popular from what is individually meaningful to you. They are available via email, Facebook and for individual meetings, and they regularly sponsor events in East Campus dorms and neighborhoods.

Brittany

Currently, I am planning to declare a major in Chemistry with a minor in African and African American Studies, but those are subject to change because I am very indecisive. My interests in chemistry are in pharmacology, toxicology and biochemistry. I also have interests in diasporic studies and Pan-Africanism.

I’ve changed my intended many times, so for now I plan on double majoring in chemistry and environmental science. My interests lie in the intersect between the environment and human health. I’m curious about how things we use everyday can potentially cause health problems. I’m also very interested in sustainability. A lot of the work I do outside of class is to try to create Duke a more sustainable campus. With a future of rising populations and global temperature, I think this fascinating topic is something to invest in.

Tatayana

I am an African/ African American Studies and Religion double major, on a pre-med track. Within my majors, I hope to study how blackness informs one's religious experiences. I am also interested in how both religion and race affect one's experiences with healthcare, particularly as it relates to Sickle Cell disease.

As of right now, I am interested in double majoring in Spanish and History while pursuing a Jewish Studies certificate. Hopefully one day, I will be able to educate others on genocides worldwide, working hard to prevent and completely eliminate this human rights atrocity. I also really just enjoy reading Spanish literature, especially poetry.
