Fall 2020


Thank you for your interest in the Peer Program. We hope that our brochure and this letter will answer many of your questions about the program and the screening process. You are strongly advised to attend our Virtual Open House on Monday, September 21, 2020 at 12:15 pm and at 5:00 pm. At these times, the screening process will be thoroughly described and discussed and all your questions will be answered.

Applications are being accepted through Monday, October 21, 2020. In order to apply, you must have achieved lower sophomore status. Only students who have a 2.5 cumulative index will be considered. Also, please note that a continuous two-semester commitment to the program is required.

After your first screening, you may be asked for a second interview with the administrative director of the Peer Program and me. Only after successfully completing both interviews will you be invited to join the Peer Program, which admits approximately twenty students each semester.





Select a date from the calendar.


Your answers will provide the screeners with some basic information about you prior to your screening, and familiarize you with the type of questions that will be asked during the interviews. Please answer as thoroughly as possible. Anything you would like to add in addition to the questions below will be welcomed.

In the space provided list all the times that you have available Monday through Thursdays for a one-hour screening interview during peer office hours. Although only one or two times will actually be chosen, this is necessary in order to match your hours with the available hours of the screeners. Also indicate the best time to telephone you to set up an appointment. A cell phone is preferred.

Peer Office Hours are: Mondays 12pm-5pm Tuesdays10 am-5pm Wednesdays 10am - 5pm & Thursdays 10am-3pm.
