PEAK: Peers Engaging & Achieving Knowledge

Peers Engaging and Achieving Knowledge (PEAK) connects first and second year undecided students with upper-class BGSU students who serve as peer advisors.  PEAK advisors can provide their perspective on balancing curricular and co-curricular activities, classes they have completed, their declared major, and academic as well as campus resources.

PEAK advisors will also hold Sophomore Success workshops for students during Spring 2015.    
If you have questions, feel free to email PEAK advisors at peak@bgsu.edu.
