WHAT IS A PEER ADVISOR?
Peer Advisors are a team of AGCJ, AGSC, ALED, and USAL-LED majors who volunteer their time to assist students with course schedule planning and other related academic issues. The Peer Advisors are housed in AGLS 276 and work with students in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications (ALEC). Peer Advisors visit with students and offer pointers for academic success. They work closely with the Lead Office Associate, Mrs. Charlene Boggus, and the academic advisors in the department.
ALEC Peer Advisors mentor all students using quality and credible information
with a willing and positive attitude while upholding the Aggie Honor Code.
