Meet the PALs

Senior PALs 2017

Got questions? Looking for support from a peer? Stop by New Student Connections and meet with a PAL! PALs (Peer Advisor Leaders) are current USF students that are committed to helping first-year and transfer students love their USF experience. Let a PAL help you find the answers you need, coach you through your transition, and keep you informed of upcoming social and academic involvement opportunities. Stop by in person, e-mail, or give them a call! Connect with a PAL today

The PAL Mission Statement: as a New Student Connections team, we will reach all students, especially those who do not feel at home at USF by building genuine relationships and a sense of community. We will do this because of our personal experiences in the hopes that every student finds their purpose at USF and has an incredi-bull time.
