Peer Advising

Students accepted into the ARCHES program are scheduled for an orientation with a Peer Advisor to discuss how to access the services available to program participants.

The Peer Advisors are also trained to work with the students on specific areas of concern: organizational strategies, decision making skills, financial planning and budgeting, general study skills, and time/life management such as individualized academic calendars for the quarter with important due dates for assignments and tests.
