About Me: I became a Peer Leader because I wanted students to feel prepared for their first semester at Austin Peay, and most importantly, I wanted to feel like they had a friend to help guide them through a new season. Being a Peer Leader has been my favorite involvement since I came to Austin Peay, and I would love to answer any questions you may have!

About Me: I was inspired by my peer leader, Natalie Castillo (who is now a graduate student at Austin Peay), to become a peer leader. Her attitude about the school and psychology department led me to look further into the Office of Student Success--the rest is history!

About Me: I became a Peer Leader in Fall 2019. It has been one of my favorite experiences within my collegiate years, and having the opportunity to serve as a Senior Peer Leader has given me so much. I became a peer leader because I wanted first-time freshman to see all the good Austin Peay can offer, and truly help students recognize their potential as college students.
