Peer Advisors

Peer Advisors 
CST Peer Advisors assist our students with a variety of questions. The peer advisors are trained on CST and Temple University policies, services, and procedures. They serve as a point of contact as students arrive at the Center for Academic Advising and Professional Development. Our peers help with students related programs and projects.
 
Any general questions can be directed to our Peer Advisors. As Temple students, they are willing and able to offer great advice to help students achieve their goals. You can email that at ADVCST@Temple.edu.
