Doing your best academically means more than attending class and studying. It means learning about professors' expectations, finding and using university resources, and knowing where to turn when you have a problem or concern. Peer Advisers are veteran student "buddies" who can help.

If you are a new, degree-seeking undergraduate or international graduate student, starting in December 2013 you can request a Spring Semester 2014 Peer Adviser to be your campus guide during your first weeks at UB. Your Peer Adviser will give you the unofficial, uncensored, insider's perspective on surviving, thriving, and just plain enjoying yourself at UB.

 

Get tips on

  • getting around campus
  • career-related organizations and activities
  • university expectations and course workloads
  • saving money on books, housing, etc.
  • getting the courses you need
  • safety
  • meeting important deadlines (e.g., financial aid)

Testimonials

My Peer Adviser was excellent. She has been so helpful. I felt so welcomed to the University!

My Peer Adviser was concerned about me as a person and helped me to feel comfortable in a new environment.

I can't say enough about how positive my experience was with my Peer Adviser. He was very knowledgeable and considerate.

Your Peer Adviser can be “on-call” to you during the first weeks of the semester to answer questions, address concerns or problems, introduce you to students and professors in your school or major, provide support during stressful times, and/or notify you of services and events of interest. If you're new to Baltimore, your Peer Adviser can acquaint you with the metropolitan area. If you're an international student, your Peer Adviser can assist you in getting settled in and can inform you about American customs.

Once admitted to the University as a degree-seeking undergraduate or international graduate student, you're eligible for a Peer Adviser. Request your Peer Adviser Today.
