Peer Advisors are an integral part of the VSB advising team, which is composed of the Clay Center advisor, peer advisor, and faculty advisor. Peer advisors are junior and senior business students, selected through a rigorous application and interview process, who support VSB students throughout their freshman and sophomore years. Peer advisors complete a comprehensive training program that equips them with the knowledge, resources, and tools to support their advisees as they settle into college life and navigate their freshman year and beyond.
Each peer advisor is assigned a group of up to 10 students with whom they meet regularly throughout the academic year, both individually and in group meetings. Serving as a point of contact, peer advisors provide guidance with regard to college transition issues, selecting classes and areas of study, getting involved in VSB and university activities, and considering available on-campus resources and programs.
Under the direction of the Clay Center and in conjunction with a student Executive Board, peer advisors provide invaluable service to VSB students.
