About the CNR Undergraduate PAL Program

The Peer Advising Leadership (PAL) Program of CNR strives to offer personal viewpoints and experiences to current and prospective CNR students. These students are trained in understanding CNR and University requirements, policies, and procedures, and they help with CNR recruitment and enrichment programs. Their work is integral to the success of their fellow CNR undergraduates.

If you wish to contact a peer advisor, visit the Student Resource Center at 260 Mulford, or send an email.

You can also follow us on Instagram and Facebook
