In addition to academic mentors, incoming Seton Hall freshmen are assigned peer advisers to make the transition to college life as smooth and enjoyable as possible. These peer advisers are carefully chosen; they are successful and personable undergraduates from all over the United States (this year from Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and, of course, New Jersey) and from countries around the globe (this year from Trinidad & Tobago).
There are 50 peer advisers for the incoming class. They are highly motivated and can help first-year students to:
- meet other students,
- find new ways to anticipate and solve typical first year problems,
- gather information about university-sponsored academic and social activities,
- become acquainted with the university.
