Biology Peer Advising


The Biology Peer Advisors are your go-to mentors for all-things related to BIOSC majors, courses, extra-curriculars, and work-life balance.  These second, third, and fourth year students across most of the BIOSC majors are here to share their experiences: how they survived their first year on campus, how they chose their major, how to get on a waitlist, how to ask a professor for a letter of recommendation, but also important extracurricular questions such as which clubs they love, how to play quidditch without a flying broomstick, which bathrooms to avoid.  Our Peer Advisors have weekly office hours for drop-in questions, but will also host events throughout the semester.
