Peer Advising for Undergraduate Business Students
The Leavey School of Business has implemented a system to pair-up incoming, first-year students with an upper-classman Peer Advisor in addition to their assigned Faculty Advisor. In partnership with the Faculty Advisor, a trained Peer Advisor will work with assigned students throughout their first academic year and help to answer academic and social questions common during the first year. Under the direction of the Undergraduate Business Progams Office, and in conjunction with the student Peer Advising Executive Board, Peer Advisors will help provide guidance to advise on many topics, including:

Freshmen will be contacted by their assigned Peer Advisor in August, prior to their arrival on campus. An initial meeting will be scheduled for the student to meet with both their Peer Advisor and Faculty Advisor during the third week of classes.
Additionally, Peer Advisors will staff drop-in hours in Lucas Hall 115 to answer questions about Santa Clara Univeristy and the Leavey School of Business academic requirements and regulations. The Peer Advisors can also be contacted via email at LSB-PeerAdvisor@scu.edu.
The following is the schedule for drop-in hours in Lucas Hall 115 for the Fall 2014 Quarter. If your schedule does not allow you to attend any of these drop-in hours, you may email the Peer Advisors at
LSB-PeerAdvisor@scu.edu and request a scheduled appointment.
Congratulations to Lucas Gonzales-Garza. Lucas received a $50 Amazon gift certificate as the winner of the Advising Feedback drawing for students who visited drop-in Peer Advising in Lucas Hall 115 in Spring 2014.
