Peer Advising Program

Experienced students want to make your life easier

Peer advisors (PAs) are upper-level students who offer you not only the information and support you need, but also an invaluable student perspective. They’re well-trained in academic regulations and requirements, referrals, and helping skills. They won’t tell you which classes to take or avoid, but they can give you a balanced view and help you design a course schedule that serves your needs and interests. With their guidance, you’ll have a more fulfilling college experience both academically and socially. We believe in PAs so much that we assign one to each first-year Comm student.
