Peer Advisor - Application due March 4, 2018

Who are Peer Advisors?

  • Peer Advisors are students who participated in the LEAP experience so successfully as first year student that we hired them to come back as role models, liaisons and helpers.
  • Each LEAP section has a Peer Advisor, and they are in the class every day, along with the students. They can answer students’ questions about class content as well as questions about how to navigate the University.
  • To prepare for their responsibilities, Peer Advisors take an online summer class and participate in a two-day workshop just before classes begin.
