The Class of 2023 gathered in Memorial Chapel on Aug. 29 for a Getting Good Advice workshop presented by Wesleyan’s Academic Peer Advisors and Deans Laura Patey and Jennifer Wood.
Academic Peer Advisors are juniors and seniors who work during New Student Orientation and throughout the academic year to enhance student access to academic resources and academic life. They meet one-on-one with students to provide peer advice regarding topics such as time management, organization, study strategies, and other academic skills.
In addition, peer advisors lead workshops in residence halls and with student groups on topics such as metacognitive learning strategies, public speaking, study skills, and exam preparation strategies.
During the workshop, the peer advisors answered questions from members of the Class of 2023 and performed a song, which is an annual tradition.
