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.

I'm currently on the mechanical engineering track but considering switching to civil engineering. I like to joke that if I wasn't in Pratt, I would be an English or Psych major.

I am undeclared but I am set on a public policy major and a human rights certificate with French as a possible minor. I’m really interested in the intersection between development and issues of rights on the African continent and how this is handled especially by global organizations such as the UN.

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.

I’m a prospective public policy major who’s interested in international development and women’s reproductive health. I’m also interested in languages -- I’ve taken French classes at Duke and am considering minoring in it, but I’d also love to graduate with a new language under my belt.

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.
