Peer Advising

HDEV peer advisors help other HDEV students achieve academic success. They are recruited from among the junior and senior student body and are extensively trained by HDEV's professional academic advisors to share their strategies for successfully navigating coursework and requirements, along with their knowledge of campus resources.

What can peer advisors do?

  • Advise you on a walk-in basis
  • Help with your course selection, scheduling and late add/drop questions
  • Assist you in exploring internship opportunities
  • Offer referrals to various campus resources, both academic and non-academic
