Peer advisors assist the Cognitive Science advising team by providing students with information about the major, major requirements, academic planning (e.g., helping students choose classes, create 4- or 2-year plans, etc.), how to get involved with clubs and research opportunities, and much, much more! 

Currently, our peer advising team offers drop-in services via Zoom. They also answer questions that appear on the CogSci EdStem page and will occasionally take over the CogSci Instagram page. Our peer advising services are held entirely remotely.

In addition to offering drop-in advising and answering questions on our EdStem page, peers also create new materials and resources for their fellow peers. 

A good peer advisor is a student who enjoys helping and has a particular interest in helping fellow students identify their academic interests. In general, peer advisors are friendly, empathic, and eager to support their fellow CogSci Golden Bears. This position is especially great for those who wish to gain experience with advising and/or academic counseling.
