Student Consultants

Student consultants are trained peer advisers who advise fellow students on academic matters like required courses, class selection, graduation planning and more. They offer a student's point of view, making the advice relatable and understandable.

Student consultants also facilitate events such as transfer orientation, open house and the Academy of Finance annual conference. They represent the college at various functions and serve as a liaison between administrative personnel, faculty and students on advising concerns. They also write, edit and manage CBE CONNECT, a student blog and e-newsletter.
