Peer Advisors

If you are an upper-class student, consider becoming part of the YearOne Peer Advisor program. Help first-year students transition to college life, become an integral part of the RIT community, and benefit from your own student experiences. In addition, you will earn a stipend, and this is a great opportunity to share and build your leadership and student involvement experiences! Below are some common questions about the program and how to become involved.

What is a Peer Advisor, and What do they Do?

YearOne Peer Advisors are current RIT students who are actively engaged in campus and academic life on campus, and understand both the excitement and the trepidation that comes with the college transition. Peer Advisors are an integral part of the course and are carefully chosen; they are successful and personable undergraduates and are highly motivated to help first-year students to:

  • meet other students,
  • find new ways to anticipate and solve typical first-year problems,
  • gather information and be aware of university-sponsored academic and social activities,
  • become acquainted with the university.
