Need another perspective? Consider talking to an upperclass student who has been through it before. Reach out to any of the resources below to get advice and mentorship from fellow students.
Each residential college has Residential College Advisers (RCAs). These are upperclassmen living in the residential colleges to promote safety, citizenship, and civic responsibility among college residents. You can go to your RCA with any problem you are having. They will always be happy to listen! In conjunction with RCAs, each ‘zee group’ has a PAA who is a great source for advice about the best classes and professors, balancing your course-load and extracurriculars, and getting to know professors.

Peer Advising Groups:
LGBT Peer Educators
Representing a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, these lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, and allied (supporting) students can be reached at any time to talk about any issues relating to sexuality and gender identity. They also host panels in campus residence halls, classrooms, and community groups.
Peer Health Advisers
Have a question or concern about sleep, stress, mental health, nutrition, physical fitness, alcohol or anything other health topic and want to speak with another student? Peer Health Advisers work to raise awareness, provide education, and serve as a resource to other students on a wide variety of wellness issues. Each peer adviser also has a name plate that is located outside of their door.
Pre-Health Peer Advisers
These peer advisers are trained by HPA and well-connected with the office. They are juniors and seniors who are willing to share their pre-health experiences and offer academic and non-academic advice about preparing for the health professions.
SHARE provides crisis response, support, advocacy, education, and referral services to those who are dealing with incidents of interpersonal violence and abuse including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking.
Student-Athlete Wellness Leaders (SAWL)
Student-Athlete Wellness Leaders are trained varsity student-athletes who serve as role models in noticing and responding to peers in need of support. Seek out the SAWL on your team for friendly support as well as concrete knowledge of resources.
Mentorship & Community-Building:
Men Against Violence Resource & Intervention Community (MAVRIC)
This project is an alliance of Princeton University undergraduate and graduate students committed to preventing the occurrence of interpersonal violence and abuse within our community by challenging social norms related to misogyny, sexism, stereotyping and gender/orientation bias.
Princeton University Mentorship Program (PUMP)
PUMP consists of three projects: Asian American Mentoring Program, the Black Student Union's Leadership and Mentoring Program, and Latinos Unidos for Networking and Advising. The program strives to support the lives of diverse students at Princeton through various leadership, mentoring, and group activities. PUMP assists students in the transition into campus life, and provides them with a network to encourage academic and social exploration.
Princeton Women's Mentorship Program
This program inspires women to actively engage in conversations about leadership on campus and beyond. They believe that the heart of the program lies in the bonds forged by mentorship and the valuable takeaways from their events.
