PA Application Information

How to Apply

The Peer Adviser application is now live! We are excited you are considering applying to be a 2020-2021 Peer Adviser. The PA application will close Monday, January 27 at 11:59 PM. Before you begin your application, please make sure you have reviewed the position and important dates.


The Peer Adviser application is now open. The application includes three essay questions and the submission of a 30-60 second video explaining why you would be a good PA. 

  1. Why is the Peer Adviser position important to the new student experience?
  2. What are 3 pieces of advice that a Peer Adviser can share with their new students?
  3. Peer Advisers participate in trainings that encourage self-reflection across many topics, including your identities, first year transition, and facilitating across difference. This self-reflection and learning takes place effectively when all members of the group are willing to engage and listen actively. Reflect on a time you engaged with a person or a group who you did not share many identities, beliefs, or experiences with. Please include what was challenging, what you learned about yourself, and how this experience prepares you for the Peer Adviser role.

We encourage you to save a word document with your responses.
