Peer coaches are upperclass students who succeed in the classroom and want to help incoming students do the same by helping them make the transition to college life and encouraging them to get involved in campus activities.
Coaches are empowering, positive, academically savvy, mature, responsible, engaged within the university, open and honest. They are committed to helping all freshmen have a great first year experience by helping them connect with the campus community.
Your peer coach will contact you by e-mail in August to introduce himself or herself and begin to answer any questions you have about starting out at SBU. You will meet your peer coach during Welcome Days activities. (Learn about Welcome Days in First-Year
