Peer Advisors for Fall 2021

Meet our Peer Advisors

Peer advisors are transfer students from the Project RAISE community college partners (Citrus, Cypress, Fullerton, Golden West, Irvine Valley, Orange Coast, Saddleback, Santa Ana, or Santiago Canyon) and are current students in Natural Sciences and Mathematics or Engineering and Computer Science. PAs help community college students successfully understand and navigate the STEM transfer process both at community colleges and at CSUF. Peer advisors engage community college students and build a STEM community through educational and social events. Peer advisors also assist students participating in the undergraduate research experience in the summer.
