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.

I serve students housed in Randolph.
I am interested in double majoring in biology (with a concentration in evolutionary biology or animal behavior) and cultural anthropology. Conservation, ecology and biological diversity, as well as story telling and the power of people's narratives, are several things that really intrigue me.
I serve students in Trinity.
As of right now I'm planning on double majoring in biology with a concentration in anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, and evolutionary anthropology with a concentration in anatomy and paleoanthropology.

I serve students in Bassett.
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.
I serve students housed in GA.
I am a junior double majoring in chemisty and computer science. My interest lies in computational chemistry, especially the application of physical chemistry to NMR spectroscopy. I love to help freshmen and sophomores who are interested in chemistry or related subjects, to explore these areas and plan the academics. My experience of research at Duke and my involvement in Bass Connections and DukeEngage are something that I'd like to share with other students as well.
I serve students housed in Brown.
I am interested in pursuing a major in neuroscience or computer science with a minor in psychology. I would love to study the biological and neurological basis of mental illness, and apply computational knowledge into practicing problem-solving approaches.
