what does it mean to be a Peer Advisor?

Being a Peer Advisors means being an expert navigator, an ally, and a year round resource to fellow Jayhawks. 

Peer Advisors are often the hub of information for the Undergraduate Advising Center. They have a very direct connection to campus and what is happening in our academic community. Simply - they know everything!
PA's are a student resource that can be seen year round. They are team of experts with lived experiences in a variety of majors.
