Peer Leaders

Each new student will be assigned a Peer Leader, a Bauer upperclassmen, who will be their personal guide for “How to do Bauer.” Bauer students will make up a team that will meet for a bi-weekly seminar led by their Peer Leader.

A freshmen student can expect their Peer Leader to help them with:

  • Meeting new people
  • Getting them connected to campus activities, clubs and organizations
  • Help navigating the UH campus
  • Learn strategies for being successful in classes (ex. how to interact with your professors, organize study groups, etc.)
  • Learn about and use academic and personal support resources at the university; such as the Writing Center, Learning Support Services, Health Center, etc.

2022-2023 ELASP for Freshmen

Meet the Peer Leaders

What I love about ELASP is how great of a support system or aims to be for students.

ELASP provided the resources and connections to navigate through Bauer. The workshops were relatable and having peer leaders to ask questions made college less intimidating.

I like how ELASP is a helping hand for incoming students. I also love how it is a comfortable and not too formal zone.
