The summer months at the University of Missouri bring many familiar sights and sounds: the crashes of construction equipment, brilliant blooms all over campus and incoming Tigers attending Summer Welcome events.
Summer Welcome gives new Mizzou students a chance to get to know the campus and their future classmates, including making connections within the College of Health Sciences. CHS Summer Welcome peer advisors spend the summer months helping incoming freshmen and transfer students get acclimated and ready for their first semester at the university.
Peer advisors help incoming students register for classes, answer questions about student schedules and the university, and assist CHS Academic Advisors with a variety of tasks. Here’s a quick introduction to our six College of Health Sciences summer peer advisors for 2023:
