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 upper-class 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.
If you are a CoE student, and you would like to be added to a list of students interested in becoming a peer advisor, add your name to our Peer Advisor Interest Form.
