What are Peer Leaders?

Peer Leaders are upperclassmen who completed the Seminar on Success (SOS) class as freshmen, have been recommended by faculty, and are then selected through an application and interview process. Academic success, involvement in campus organizations, and knowledge of the Mayville State campus are essential to becoming a Peer Leader.  Peer Leaders assist freshmen in their adjustment to college life by being available to assist with move-in weekend, being part of the SOS course, and by hosting events on campus. 

How do I become a Peer Leader?

Students interested in becoming a peer leader must complete an application and go through an interview process in the spring. Qualified applicants are students in sophomore standing or above and have a minimum overall 2.5 GPA. Please view the Peer Leader position description for more information on the qualities and duties of a peer leader.
