CASA Peer Advisor

CASA Peer Advising

The CASA Peer Advising program connects students to upper-level peers who are personable, supportive, and understanding of the needs of Mines students. Peer Advisors are an integral part of CASA because they offer an invaluable and genuine student perspective on courses, registration, major exploration, and Mines academic resources.  In addition, Peer Advisors share their time management, study skills, and exam preparation techniques with students looking to reinforce their skills for academic success. The CASA Peer Advisors are excited to work with you! Contact Lisa Anderson for additional information:
