Our current peer advisors are all chemistry majors in their senior year and have gone through training with the College Center for Advising Services, and also work with the chemistry Undergraduate Studies Committee.
They can help students with:
- Declaring a major
- Making connections with faculty
- Reviewing research opportunities
- Exploring study abroad options
- Investigating independent and interdisciplinary study options
If they can't answer your question, they are happy to point you in the right direction!
