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.
Along with gaining experience in advising, as a student consultant you will exercise and enhance your skills in business writing, presentations, teamwork and project management. By sharing your experiences with other students, you will empower them with the knowledge needed to succeed at Towson University. You may find the most rewarding aspect of being a student consultant is helping others and making a difference in the academic careers of your fellow students.
Student consultants commit to 10 hours per week during the academic term for two terms. The hours of work are determined with consideration for your class schedule. The first term is unpaid and during the second term, students receive a stipend toward their tuition.
