  • Access to professional development opportunities are increased
  • Increased opportunities for connecting with other students on campus
  • Enhanced leadership skills through training and the peer helping experience

Peer Helper Appreciation Event

Student Affairs hosted the first Peer Helper Program appreciation event in fall 2017. Peer helpers from Peer Helper Programs across campus came together over food and activities and even participated in some impromptu dancing. This once-a-semester event is open to all peer helpers. If you are a peer helper and want to help with the planning future events please email Remy Marlatt.
