The Advising Center and the New Student Programs office have developed a unique way for SF State students to become paraprofessional staff for campus Orientation. The students trained in counseling classes become peer advisors to new students and their family members during the summer and winter Orientations. Become an Orientation Leader and make a difference for future students.
How to get Involved?
The Undergraduate Advising center offers Counseling 325 each semester. Counseling 325 is a three-unit course that teaches students the undergraduate requirements here at SF State and the various programs on campus, while building necessary leadership skills. In order to be a GatorAider, the student must pass with at least a B. This three-unit GE course preps future GatorAiders on peer advising and SFSU. Once course is completed, exemplarily students will be invited to take an additional class in order to become an official GatorAider which then works for the Advising Center on stipend over the summer and winter breaks.
