Peer advocates (PAs) are current students trained to support and guide new students, like you. Your PA will contact you in August.

Your PA will facilitate a small peer group that you will be a part of. They will get to know you, help you meet other new students, and show you how to get involved on campus. Their goal is to help you make a successful transition to Cornell. Your peer group will meet several times each day during New Student Orientation (NSO). Your PA will continue to plan activities for you throughout the first three blocks to make sure that you are connected to services, resources, and friends.

PA candidates go through a highly selective interview process during the spring semester. Ideal PAs have a positive attitude, are dependable, communicate effectively, and work well with a team. Your PAs are the best Cornell has to offer. They are personable and responsible community members.  

Have questions? Contact Assistant Dean of Students / Director of Student Life Angie Bauman Power at ABaumanPower@cornellcollege.edu or 319.895.4103.
