Become a Peer Advisor
Becoming a peer advisor presents a great opportunity to help your fellow students while developing leadership and problem solving skills, improve your communication skills, meet other students and faculty, and provide valuable services to others. To become a peer advisor, you must be able to commit four hours per week for four terms to advising, and attend a weekly one-hour training session.
