“I love being a peer advisor because I am able to make connections with fellow students and help them along their academic journey. The reason I became a peer advisor was because when I was a freshman, both staff and student advisors guided me through my difficulties, and I wanted to do the same for others. The great thing about advising is that it does not just stop there--we also have weekly check-up meetings, plan Student-Alumni Career Day, and develop interpersonal skills.”
