As a peer-advisor we would have a privilege to help our peers with their course audit as well as advise on some of the other academic questions they might have - but you always had to make sure that you are discrete with this information and that your peers can trust you with their academic confidential information - a skill easily transferable to many careers.

I joined AAO to be a freshmen’s guide, the one I didn’t have and much needed in my first year. When freshmen visited the office hours, I tried to not only answer their specific questions but tell them about university resources, help them find relevant students clubs and share wisdom on how to not miss out on research and academic opportunities. Moreover, having more experience and networking, I could consult students on future job opportunities with a chosen major. In other words, I shared the advice I had craved for but gained on my own experience, sometimes later than needed.
