Peer Assistants

Peer Assistants are volunteers who support the Slutzker Center in its mission to support and serve Syracuse University’s international student population. 

The primary roles of a Peer Assistant are to:

  • Welcome and assist students during orientation, arrival and check-in, and throughout the orientation process.
  • Provide students with answers and/or direct them to University-affiliated resources.
  • Meet new international students.
  • Form new friendships.
  • Give back to the University community. 

To be considered, candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Enrolled at Syracuse University for at least one academic semester
  • Attend training prior to beginning the Peer Assistant work
  • Be available to work a minimum of 14 hours per week during the term(s) for which they applied
