About Peer Advisors

Peer Advisors are student leaders drawn from a variety of academic departments who assist incoming freshmen and transfer students in the registration process before, during and after orientation.

These students are academic role models. They work under the direction of the Office of Academic Advising to teach new students about academic policies and resources. With the OAA and faculty, they form part of the advising network that supports William & Mary undergraduates.
