About our Peer Advisors

2019 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.

Robbie Amori

My name is Robert Amori, and I am a junior from Saline, MI studying Chemical Engineering with a minor in Music. I am very involved around campus, being both a member of the Michigan Marching Band clarinet section and the Co-President of SWAM, Michigan's club swim team. I am also a member of M-Heal: The Initiative, a student project team dedicated to lowering the mortality rate of underweight newborns in third-world countries. I enjoy spending my free time playing with my cats, singing along to the Zac Brown Band in the shower, and taking long walks on the beach during a sunset. I am excited to work with the incoming engineering students to find their path here at the University of Michigan and discover themselves in the process.
