Peer Support Services


Peer Support Services, which began at Queens College in 1973, is based on the assumption that the more students avail themselves of the college's services and programs, the more successful their college experience will be. Peer Counselors see their role as helping other students to learn more about themselves, the college, and its offerings, and then clarifying available alternatives and options. 


Peer Support Services are open to all registered Queens College undergraduates. Peers are available to discuss your concerns, including:
 
        • College requirements
        • Adjustment to college life
        • Graduation requirements
        • Dropping courses
        • P/NC-ing courses
        • Co-curricular activity
        • Choosing a major and/or minor
        • How to use CUNYfirst
        • Degree audits
        • Personal issues
        • Referrals to professional staff
 
The PEERS are here for you!
