What is Peer Advising?
Peer Advisors are students in their last two years of college at UW Bothell who can help pre-major and first year students with drop-in questions. The Peer Advisors are all students who are in their majors, and they are trained to help you with anything from registering for classes to picking out a major.
Drop by during our hours, Monday-Thursday, 10am to 4pm to ask a question! Check in at the Student Success Center Welcome Desk in UW1.

Why is Zoe a peer advisor? "When I was a pre-major student, I had faced many personal and academic difficulties that forced me to reconsider and readjust my plans. I was too intimidated to take advantage of all the different resources on campus that could have really helped; sometimes, talking to peers can be a lot less intimidating. As a peer advisor, I look forward to working with other students to develop plans for meeting their educational goals, readjust when necessary, and destigmatize failure."
