Hannah Tompkins of Ararat, a student majoring in special education, served as a peer leader at Bob Jones University for the fall 2015 semester.
Peer leaders are upperclassmen that are paired with freshman seminar coaches to co-teach the seminar course. They provide support to the coaches in teaching and interacting with students inside and outside of the classroom. Their primary responsibility is to serve as a positive role model by providing the perspective of a successful student in relation to course topics and activities.
“I am thankful for these students and their commitment to serve and lead their peers,” said Rebecca Weier, BJU director of student engagement. “Their example both academically and spiritually will benefit the new students as they make a successful transition to college.”
