Peer Advising

At DSU, you have an opportunity to meet with a successful upperclassman student, known as a, Peer Advisor. The Peer Advisor is to assist you in many ways including, working with you to create a day to say schedule, create and set goals, assist you in learning DSU processes and sharing resources and referrals with you.

Our Peer Advisors can help you be successful and is here to support your best plan. Due to COVID-19, advisors will be taking extra precautions to keep you and them safe. This means giving you the option to schedule a face-to-face appointment or to meet virtually via a Zoom appointment. You can select your preference when you schedule.

All appointments will need to be scheduled in advance and traditional “walk-in” hours will be hosted virtually for the fall semester.
