A Peer Advisor from each program is selected every year to serve as a mentor, tutor, and resource to undergraduates of the department. They are aware of the requirements of the department, as well as other university resources and hold scheduled office hours in the lobby area of the Cummings Art Building. They work with the undergraduate coordinator to plan events for their fellow peers. In addition to scheduling events and workshops that promote greater interaction amongst students of the department, the Peer Advisers also answer questions from prospective students.
Peer Advisors 2015-16:
EMMA COLLINS, Class of 2016
Peer Advisor, Art History
Hello! My name is Emma Collins, and I’m a junior double majoring in art history and economics at Stanford. Outside of school, I have held internship positions at Artsy, Fidelity Investments, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. One big goal for me as peer advisor is to create more awareness about the amazing internship opportunities available in the arts.
I am so excited to be the art history peer advisor, and I really hope that current and prospective students feel like they can come and talk to me for any reason. Please come to my office hours or email me if you want to chat about classes, internships, sports, the East Coast, or anything else!
