Advising Success Center

Peer Advisor Liaisons (PALs)

PALs are the Peer Advisor Liaisons for the Advising Success Center, and they will assist with any questions students may have about advising. 

“We are students looking to help our campus peers by being available to provide quality resource information related to curriculum, majors, and NJIT advising policies and processes in an encouraging atmosphere.”

Major: Concrete Industry Management

What I like about NJIT:

I like NJIT because it allows me to take advantage of many things big campuses don't have to offer such as the Peer Advisor Liaison position. I also like how NJIT has a great diverse group of people.

Lemuel Wilson

Major: Information Technology

What I like about NJIT:

I like NJIT because it is very supportive of the Greek Community. Other universities make active attempts to damage their Greek Life due to the stigma associated with them and an apparent lack of understanding. Greek Life at NJIT is what it is supposed to be about: Leadership and Service.
