What is an Academic Peer Advisor?

An academic peer advisor (PA) is a junior or senior student hired by the Office of Academic Advising to assist faculty advisors in their efforts to help our Incoming Loggers (first-year and transfer students) transition to the academic rigor of college life.

They are highly knowledgeable peers, who can assist you with university policies and procedures, are a great resource when selecting courses and exploring possible majors/minors, and are invaluable when it comes to navigating the registration process. They offer academic guidance and keep you informed about important campus deadlines and events. You can also count on your PA to be caring and friendly face on campus.
