Your Peer Advisors are Junior and Senior level Psychology majors just like you! Since they have taken or are currently taking a lot of psychology courses, they know whatcourses go well together. They are great at helping you plan what courses you need to meet your Psych degree requirements! You can see a Peer Advisor by coming in during our office hours Monday through Thursday 9am to 4pm and Friday 9am to noon.
