Peer Academic Mentors

The Peer Academic Mentors (PAM) are upper-class students who work to provide academic counseling to those wishing to enhance their study skills as well as those who are in academic jeopardy.

What We Do

Mentors are a source of academic support for fellow students throughout their time at SU. We work with students to develop effective study skills and strategies on an individual basis, design and facilitate academic skills workshops, aid students in the registration process, introduce students to academic support services, and guide students through short- and long-term planning. 

Been there, done that:

The best thing about Peer Mentors is that we’re students just like you! As upperclassmen we have experiences both in and out of the classroom that directly relate to whatever you are struggling with. We welcome your questions and concerns, and we will do everything we can to get you the help you need!
