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.
