Meet the Peer Advisers
What are "peer advisers"?
They're engineering and computer science students just like you.
Peer advisers are stationed at the front desk as you enter the Watson School Advising Office. Engineering and computer science students just like you have received special training to help you work through the experience of being a Watson School student. They have a deep knowledge of the campus, including our academic support systems, registration processes and policies, and how to navigate academic departments. They also know where to go for answers and will save you time and effort by pointing you in the right direction and making knowledgeable referrals. From filling out forms to filling up a meal card, they've experienced the Watson School from the inside. And if you need to complete a form, they're also helpful in directing you to the correct one to fill your need.
Peer advisers are usually rising juniors or seniors who have already experienced much of what you will go through as a student. They are selected for their strong communications skills, capacity for discretion, diplomacy and resourcefulness.
