Peer Academic Advisor at GSU Peer Academic Advisor
During the fall, FYE utilizes the expertise of Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) in the advising process. While every undeclared student also meets with a professional advisor at least once every semester until he or she declares, the PAA provides a student perspective that many undergraduates find essential. PAA duties include pre-advisement meetings for students with more than 30 hours and initial check-in advisement for all undeclared students visiting our office. They also help monitor the flow into and out of the office and follow up with students who have not come in for their appointments, contacting students by phone and email.
In the summer, PAAs assist in conducting major exploration activities at SOAR by preparing various materials, files, and documents for use in the SOAR advisement sessions. Other duties are assigned as they arise.
