2015-16 Peer Academic Leaders
Peer Academic Leaders (PALs) serve as mentors, provide a built-in support system, and enhance the sense of community within each Living Learning Community (LLC). The PAL contributes to the education of residents by serving as a role model and academic resource as well as by linking them to other important departments across campus. The PAL develops and maintains open lines of communication with faculty and staff involved as a liaison for the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
The benefits to becoming a PAL are limited only by your ambition, but if we have to get specific, check these perks out:
Each PAL receives a room (within a 4-bed private suite) located in their assigned LLC in Shocker Hall. As compensation, PALs will not be charged for their assigned room. PALs will be allowed to move in to the halls up to three weeks before fall move-in at no additional cost.
