Hosting live events allows me to help fellow students in real-time with issues relevant to them at that moment. It allows everyone in attendance to glean from each other's experiences.

-Sherry Wilson, Peer Mentor



I love hosting live events because they allow me to feel a greater connection to my peers and share knowledge that I think is extremely helpful. But my favorite part is learning from them too!
