Peer Advisors

Wanted: Peer Advisors for Orientation 2018!

 

Peer Advisors are current Kinesiology students, in all years and majors, who assist the Office of Undergraduate Student Affairs (OUSA) with Summer and Fall Orientation for incoming first-year and transfer students. Peer Advisors also sometimes work with additional events throughout the school year. This is a paid position (including paid training, which takes place primarily in early May).

Peer Advisors play a crucial role within Kinesiology -- they provide one of the first points of contact for new students with the University and the Kinesiology community. Peer Advisors' student experiences inform and inspire the planning and implementation of orientation each year. The time commitment can vary depending on availability within June-August, but the schedule will accommodate spring/summer coursework or a second job, if necessary.

During each three-day summer orientation program, we host Kines students for about 1.5 days -- hopefully you remember this awesome part of your time at your orientation!  We are looking for Peer Advisors to assist in the Kines portion.

Our Peer Advisors are invaluable! They are dedicated students who want to share their experiences in Kinesiology while assisting new students specifically with advising and registration.
