The office of First Year Programs is seeking talented UW students for the
2006-2007 Peer Adviser staff! Students from all class standings, majors, and
departments are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will have a genuine
interest in helping other students and their families through their transition
to the UW. Applicants should have strong organization skills, be willing to
share their UW experiences with new students, and a desire to get involved with
and give back to the University.
As a Peer Adviser, you will facilitate workshops on topics such as UW academics
and transitional needs, work closely with incoming students during their class
registration process, and facilitate small group discussions on varying
University topics. You will also develop transferable public speaking and
leadership skills as you interact with many people from diverse backgrounds.
Training for Peer Advisers takes place during Spring Quarter; if you are
selected, you will receive 3 credits for Gen St 347. Peer Advisers work an
average of 35 hours per week for the Summer Advising and Orientation sessions
and variable hours as class schedules permit for Quarter Orientations the
following school year.
