Peer Advising Leaders Program


The Peer Advising Leaders (PAL) Program is a collaborative effort involving the Division of Student Affairs, the Academic Advising Resource Center, and the College of Arts and Sciences. The PAL program aims to create a sense of community among Bachelor of Arts and double-degree first-year students and to help them make the most of their first-year educational experience. Student Peer Advising Leaders (PALs) have been trained to support first-years to navigate orientation and the fall semester. PALs help first-year students use Oberlin’s academic and developmental advising system to its full potential. The goal of the program is to help Oberlin students make lasting friendships while learning how to succeed academically at Oberlin.

Students meet their PAL cohort during orientation and have the opportunity to be involved with this program during the fall semester by enrolling in LEAD 050 . Belonging to a team during orientation and fall semester means students will go through new experiences with others by their side for support and timely information.
