Quotes from current peer advisors-

My favorite thing about peer advising is…

“helping out incoming freshman and making sure they avoid common mistakes that freshman make. I also enjoy talking to the new freshman about other school related activities such as joining a fraternity/sorority, business club, etc.”

“meeting new people in the College of Business. Every student has a unique story and set of experiences to share, and it’s interesting to experience the College of Business on a micro level.”

“I feel more involved and that I am giving back to improve the college of business.”

“Helping freshman succeed and make good scheduling decisions”

“having the chance to meet new students and share my knowledge and experiences with them!”
