Peer Leaders are an integral part of the First-Year Experience program. They are sophomore, junior, and senior K students that help first-years navigate the transition to college, connect students to resources on campus, and, serve as a mentor to first-years. Because Peer Leaders are K students, they are able to offer advice and anecdotes drawing from their own experience at K.
During orientation, they lead many activities, build a connection to each student in their assigned seminar, and facilitate the construction of a community within the seminar. Throughout the year, and especially during that first fall term, Peer Leaders participate in some seminar activities, organize social activities for their seminar, and continue to mentor students individually as needed.
