Peer Advising

Meet the College of Science Peer Advisors!

These exceptional students work closely with College of Science Academic Advisors and are trained to lend support as you transition to the University and navigate college life. Peer Advisors are involved with undergraduate research, student clubs & cultural centers, hold positions on and off campus, and are preparing for a variety of career paths. They are passionate about helping you thrive as a science major!

All Peer Advisors are good listeners, can direct you to resources you may not know about, help with major exploration, connect you to social and experiential opportunities, and share perspectives on balancing school and life, staying organized, and self-care.

Some of their additional interests and specialties are listed below along with the in-person drop-in schedule for Bartlett Academic Success Center (BASC) Room 418 this fall. They also have free snacks, so please visit!
