Meet the Peer Advisors

${firstName} Abby


Year: Junior
Advice: One piece of advice I would give to incoming freshmen is to make sure you allow yourself time to take care of yourself as well. As a previous freshman I know how time consuming and stressful school is, but taking care of your mental and physical health is equally important.
${firstName} Alexia


Year: Sophomore
Advice: Set realistic goals when studying and reward yourself when you meet them.
${firstName} Ali


Year: Senior
Advice: My best academic advice is to use a planner diligently and go through every syllabus thoroughly before the first day of class.
${firstName} Bailey


Year: Junior
Advice: I think its really important to get involved,  join clubs that are related to your major but also join clubs that have nothing to do with it. This is a really good way to meet people and get connected!
${firstName} Bonnie


Year: Sophomore
Advice: One piece of advice that I have to give to incoming students is to attend all of your classes because you never know what information the professor may give out.
${firstName} Caitlin


Year: Junior
Advice: My biggest piece of advice is to work smarter, not harder. Being organized with your work and creating a study schedule (that you will stick to) will give you more time to spend on yourself or with others. Your personal, mental, and social health is just as important as your academic successes, and it’s possible to prioritize them while in college.
${firstName} Emily


Year: Junior
Advice: Organize your time wisely. Focus on your studies but make sure to find time for yourself. Do things that you love and surround yourself with people who are supportive and have similar goals as you.
${firstName} Kassidy


Year: Senior
Advice: My best piece of advice to incoming students would be to go after things with an open mind. Be willing to try new things whether that is new clubs, classes, or internships. Trying something out of your comfort zone will allow you to grow and like things you never would’ve expected.
${firstName} Kiki


Year: Sophomore
Advice: Take time for yourself when you find yourself getting overwhelmed! A much-needed break is just as important as a good grade. School-life balance is essential for mental wellness.
${firstName} Molly


Year: Junior
Advice: Stay Organized! Buy a planner at the store. Go thorugh every syllabus for each class and write down all the due dates for assignments.
${firstName} Rachel


Year: Junior
Advice: My best piece of advice for incoming students is to get involved and try new things. It’s a great way to meet new people and find new things that you love!
${firstName} Shikha


Year: Sophomore

Academic Advice: It is NEVER too early to network. Get connected with professionals from companies, clinics, and places that can provide a stepping stool to your career.

  • Attend Career fair
  • Look at the flyers posted around Creighton Hall
  • Check ANSC email list for internships and opportunities
Social Life Advice: Use the Boilerlink platform to get connected with the many events that take place on campus. Take the initiative to explore new things you haven't tried!
${firstName} Summer


Year: Senior
Advice: Use the Study Cycle! Preview, Attend, Review, Study, and Test. This allows you to go over the material several times to increase your test grade.
