Connect with Other Students

Peer Connections Peer Mentors serve as guides to the university experience, supporting and empowering all SJSU students during their academic and social adjustment to SJSU. Peer Mentors are among the best, brightest, and most diverse SJSU students. They have been through the college transition and know some of the challenges you may be facing. You can make an appointment for a one on one meeting.

What is the difference between an advisor, a tutor, and a mentor?

Academic Advisors are professional campus staff that offer skilled guidance on personal and academic questions. Academic advisors focus on course selection, registration, GE requirements, declaration of major and change of majors. Check out the Advising Hub for more information. 

Career Counselors are professional campus staff that offer skilled guidance on career related questions. Career counselors focus on exploring majors/careers, job/internship search, interviewing, networking and more. Check out the SJSU Career Center for more information.
