CSC Peer Advisors-Who We Are
We are undergraduate students who are trained by the Career Services Center to help you explore both majors and careers. As peers, we have learned to use the many resources available in the Center and look forward to sharing them with you.
We have learned how to develop our own resumes, and are ready to help you polish yours. We help support the staff in the Center with their many events and outreach activities. Come in and visit us soon.

Although you might think she would say summer, it is in fact spring because April showers bring May flowers.
