Peer Leaders are upperclass students who help with Summer Orientation and Academic Registration (S.O.A.R.), the New Student Information Fair, and Welcome Week activities. In addition to these summer responsibilities, they are also assigned as mentors in the Freshman Seminar classes in the fall. Peer Leaders interact regularly with the first-year students and are required to be role models to these students academically as well as behaviorally. A successful Peer Leader is genuinely committed, emotionally mature, enthusiastic, and possesses strong interpersonal and leadership skills.
