JagPALs or Peer Academic Leaders, is a peer mentoring program. JagPALs serve in a variety of capacities, including as SI leaders and FYE peer mentors. JagPALs offer an opportunity for successful, upper level students to give back to newer students at the university. It also allows new students to learn, from someone like themselves, how to be successful in college. Generally, mentors meet and interact with students in the FYE class or SI sessions, email them during the week, and are available to share information on academics and student life. These mentors fill an important role as they help new students adjust to college and life at South. We value our peer leaders; if you are interested in serving as a peer leader in the future, please email the Director of Student Academic Success and Retention at firstname.lastname@example.org.
