  • Peer Leader Program

    Peer Leaders are an integral part of the First-Year Programs Office. They are upperclassmen who assist instructors and mentor students in GNST101: Gateway to University Success.

    Application Process

    •  During the spring semester, invitations to apply to the Peer Leader Program are placed in students’ mailboxes. These applications are given to students who meet the following qualifications:
      •  Student who will have Junior or Senior status in the upcoming Fall semester.
      •  Students who have a 3.5 overall GPA.
    • As the process of submitting applications begins, First-Year Programs makes note of those students who:
      • Thoroughly complete a Peer Leader application, including a current picture, page essay of their Gateway experience, and synopsis of student involvement.
      •  Demonstrate leadership skills in different clubs on campus.
    •  Once students have submitted applications to the Office of First-Year Programs, applicants are asked to:
      •  Sign up for an interview with the Director of First-Year Programs (Current peer leaders will also participate in the interview).
      •  Complete a scheduling form for the Fall semester to insure that they will be free to conduct a class during a specific time.
      •  Sign an agreement form affirming participation in the Peer Leader Retreat, New Student Orientation, and other required activities.
    •  Applicants are informed whether or not they are accepted into the Peer Leader Program by way of student campus mailboxes after all interviews have been conducted.
