LaGuardia’s peer programs can help you adjust to college life, teach you about opportunities, and motivate you to seek resources that can contribute to your success. The Peer Programs focus on four areas: mentoring, tutoring, health education, and academic support and leadership. They are an essential part of the culture of caring at LaGuardia.
Peers are like you! They are LaGuardia students who know the campus, the professors, and the classes. They can relate to your experience and help guide you toward achieving your goals. Peers are always in the know about services and resources, and can assist you in times of need.
