The Office of Student Development & Involvement's goal is to help you to successfully transition and integrate into the academic, cultural and social climate of our college and community.
One of the greatest resources you'll have available as a new student are our Peer Assistant Leaders (PALs) and Program Mentors. They are students who have been where you are and now have some experience and expertise to share as you transition into the college.
Our trained student leaders help in so many ways, here are just a few:
The support of an experienced peer is what helps goals that seem unreachable suddenly become possible in the eyes of a student. My PAL taught me that the most important lessons are not always found in the classroom, sometimes you have to participate beyond your comfort zone to truly achieve progress. It is because of this support that I took the initiative to begin a student-run community service group.
