Are you itching to get involved on campus? Thats a great sign!
Below are some amazing oportunities in the CADV department.

Peer Mentor Program

The Peer Mentor Program is an awesome way to get involved and to get to know faculty on a closer level. When becoming a Peer Mentor you are offering vocational, academic, and emotional support to your peers, just as a Mentor! Planning events, workshops, guest lecturing, working collaboratively with peers, creating efficient advising projects to facilitate students success, and among much much more, making new friends!

Research Apprenticeship Program

Interested in getting involved on some research projects? Want to travel to cool cities and present and nationally recognized conferences? Contact your professors and ask them if they are working on research. Just visit thier office hours and start a conversation about research. They will guide you in shaping your research interests. Research is a great way to shape your career and professional goals.
