Peer Advising

Each year the IS Program hires a diverse team of Peer Advisors to help guide fellow students through the many decisions and processes required to make your way into and through the IS Program. We encourage current and prospective students to reach out to the peer advisors for answers, advice and support -- they are terrific resources. Peer advisors are available to meet in person or online!

Mondays 1-3pm; Tuesdays 9-11am and 12-2pm; Wednesdays 9:45-11:45am; Fridays 10:30am - 12:30pm and 1-3pm
