Peer Advisors (PA)

Who Are Peer Advisors?

Peer Advisors are experienced student leaders who have demonstrated academic and community success. Their main focus is to develop relationships with new students and to assist them with transitioning to university life. Peer Advisors connect with new students through the Cornerstones course, which is part of the First Year Experience. Cornerstones introduces students to the LeTourneau University community and encourages a holistic approach to life-long learning. Peer Advisors with majors within the School of Engineering and Engineering Technology also have the opportunity to work with FIGS (First-Year Interest Groups). FIGs will be a little smaller than the typical Cornerstones course section and will be comprised solely of engineering and engineering technology majors.

Peer Advisor responsibilities include:

  • Connecting with a group of 15-20 freshmen who enter LeTourneau University with little to no college experience
  • Assisting Freshmen in making their own connections in the LeTourneau community.
  • Coaching new students into proper study habits.
