Dear Butler Sophomores and Juniors,

Would you enjoy guiding freshmen and sophomores through Princeton academics next year?  Have you acquired helpful insights into course or major selection, academic opportunities, and how to succeed at Princeton that you would like to share?  If so, we invite you to become an academic peer adviser next year!

Academic peer advisers, both ABs and BSEs, advise assigned zee groups and are teamed with RCAs and RGSs.  For a description of what this entails, please see the information in the attached description. 

In addition, Butler will pair AB peer advisers with a faculty adviser to help them counsel their freshmen advisees on course selection on September 11 and 12 and provide additional support to their sophomores.  Dean Bogucki will be contacting BSE students separately to find students to serve in the BSE interactor role, which is fully compatible with serving simultaneously as peer academic adviser assigned to a zee group. 

The peer adviser role is an important position of responsibility at Princeton, and on top of the rewards of helping younger students, it offers other benefits in recognition of your contributions.  If you are interested, please see the attached position description for more information and complete the attached application.  Applications received by Friday, April 7 will be given first consideration. 

Note: Applicants who have drawn into a four-year college other than Butler should submit their application to the director of studies of the college where you will be living in 2016-17. 

If you have any questions whatsoever, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  We look forward to receiving your applications!


Dr. Lazen
