OAS Peer Advising Coaches
The Peer Advising Coaches aid in the OAS effort to serve and support first-year UF students, including AIM. They are exclusively chosen to assist UF freshmen as they transition from high school into college. As “experienced” UF students, the Peer Advising Coaches offer peer advice and coaching to encourage incoming freshmen. They share the in’s and out’s, do’s and don’ts, of UF. Peer Advising Coaches must make themselves available for at least 4 hours a week for office hours, where they meet one-on-one with students. During this time, PACs collaborate with the OAS Undergraduate Student Coordinators to plan workshops, social events, fundraisers, and program promotion. A one year commitment is required and mentoring experience is preferred. Peer Advising Coaches must also have a well-based knowledge of UF resources and possess effective communication skills. In return, PACs gain valuable leadership skills and opportunities in addition to academic and personal development. Visit the Meet the PACs and Coordinators page to learn more about each of our current PACs.
