Peer advisors are upperclassmen who help freshmen navigate academic, extracurricular, and social opportunities at Kilachand Honors College and Boston University. From their first communication with incoming students during the first week of classes, advisors will offer support and assistance to their advisees as they navigate the first year. Peer Advisors are associated with individual rooming groups to build community through study breaks and other events. Peer advisors are part of the first-year advising network comprising academic advisors, resident assistants, and the resident director.
Each Peer Advisor will work with a group of advisees, within Kilachand Hall or Kilachand House, matched by extracurricular and academic interests. Advisors meet with their advisees both individually and in groups in order to help them make the most of what Boston University and Kilachand have to offer. Advisors help build community through bi-monthly study breaks and through Kilachand social events.
The Kilachand Student Services office provides training and support for the Peer Advisor program.
