Peer Advisors serve as essential guides and supporters of first-year students at Ohio Dominican. 
An ODU's Peer Advisor is an upper-class student who helps first-year students by serving as a resource of information and an important connection to University services and personnel. The Peer Advisor helps promote students' adjustment, satisfaction and persistence in achieving their educational goals.

First-year students will first meet their Peer Advisors during Orientation and continue to meet with them during Welcome Week and throughout their first semester.

The Peer Advisor is directly accountable to the Peer Advisor Coordinators, who are responsible for the training, development, and advisement of the Peer Advisor  program. Peer Advisors may also work closely with the Dean of Student Life, Director for the Center of Student Involvement, and other ODU staff and faculty.
