The student workers in the Office of Academic Advising are Peer Advisors.

Peer advisors lend support by assisting students with online registration and prospective student visits; providing clerical support for the college’s Academic Advising Office; assisting with new student orientation programs; as well as representing the college at on-campus recruiting events.

Peer advisors also support advising of prospective and current students about major selection and provide information regarding the majors/options within the college.
