2020 Peer Advisors

The college experience is very different from the high school experience. The way you approach your academics and social life will need to change. EAC Peer Advisors have successfully made this transition, and are your best resource for your first year.

Peer advisors are upperclass students in a variety of engineering departments who have been trained to help first-year students choose courses, register for classes, and understand the policies and procedures of the College. More importantly, as students, peer advisors have a personal insight into life at the University of Michigan. They can answer questions about professors, majors, student organizations, and campus life in general. Peer advisors are a terrific resource for first year students. Along with academic advisors, they can assist you in making your transition to college as smooth as possible.

Max LaCosse

My name is Maxwell LaCosse and I am a senior studying Civil Engineering and American Culture. I am a first generation college student, meaning I am the first in my family to go to a 4-year university! I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where my graduating high school class was only 15 people. On campus I am involved in Epsilon Eta, a professional environmental organization. In my free time, I like to read, play board games, and snowboard. After graduation I plan on pursuing a career in higher education!

My name is Judy, and I am a rising sophomore from Long Island, NY, studying in Industrial and Operations Engineering. I am also an EGL student with a minor in International Minor for Engineers and Asian Language and Culture. On campus I'm involved in consulting projects and peer advising. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing tennis and exploring amazing restaurants and shops around Ann Arbor with my friends. I am excited to work with the incoming engineering students to discover their interests at the University of Michigan.

When not engaged in campus activities, he loves sushi, Radiohead, Chicago sports, road trips, and cats.

Jenna Sherwin

I am a rising sophomore from Grand Rapids, MI studying Civil Engineering. On campus, I am involved with Bluelab Thailand, and hold officer positions in SWE (the Society of Women Engineers) and the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers). I am also involved in UROP researching variability in Great Lakes water levels. I look forward to giving back to the engineering community and meeting other students.
