Peer Advising

BMB Peer Advisors are upperclassmen majoring in Biochemistry who are able to answer and resolve general advising questions. They work particularly with students new to UMass and to the major.

Peer Advisors are available to meet with you during the Spring 2022 semester! Visit them in LGRT 915 during their drop-in hours, or email peeradvising@biochem.umass.edu with your questions.
