CAP Peer Advisors
CAP freshmen and sophomores are assigned a Peer Advisor (PA). The PA's job is to help CAP students "learn the ropes" here at OU.
Many students learn quickly that the expectations at OHIO are drastically different than they were in high school. Students also discover that there are many more
distractions at college than perhaps there were in high school, and they may feel that there is nobody here to make sure they complete their work. The PAs help students through such transitions.
CAP PAs are upperclass students who have proven that they have what it takes to be successful at OU. They come from a variety of majors, but all have GPAs of at
least 3.30 and all are involved on campus. PAs contact students each week to offer assistance and to check in with each student.
Peer Advisors staff study tables Monday through Thursday each week and are available to meet with CAP participants to discuss any concerns they may have...
or just to go see a movie, or grab a cup of coffee. PAs are often CAP students themselves.
