PEERS Events

Each quarter there will be a number of PEERS events. These events are intended to help develop friendships outside of the classroom, form support groups, create a sense of community among PEERS scholars, and expose students to current exciting research topics. Greater investment in the program by attending special events helps students get to know each other and learn about important opportunities.
