Every year, SNAP matches all incoming freshmen with an upperclassman to act as their peer advisor and help with the transition to college.
Starting college can be really overwhelming so SNAP works closely with the Office of Student Affairs to help with this transition. We do this by individually matching each freshman with a similar upperclassman, organizing study breaks, and planning game nights. Some of our past events include Grey’s Anatomy watch party, virtual escape rooms, virtual Halloween costume parties, and more!
Peer advising extends beyond just the freshmen. Tips and Tricks sessions are organized for every major nursing class throughout the four year curriculum, so that students feel prepared at the start of each semester. Some examples include: Microbiology Tips and Tricks, Head to Toe Anatomy Practice Session, and Preparation for MedSurg.
Check the SNAP Shots email every Monday to be up to date on the latest Peer Advising events. A “How to Survive Anatomy Panel” will kick off our peer advising events in Spring 2021.
