Peer Mentor Program

Steinbright's Peer Mentor Program enables co-op students to get advice from students who have experienced the challenges you're going through and had the same questions you have about co-op.

Uncertain about anything related to co-op? Ask the students who have already been there!

Why did you want to become a peer mentor?
Co-op is one of the most exciting, rewarding and beneficial programs Drexel has to offer. It's what makes Drexel stand out from any other school. But co-op can also be one of the most stressful and nerve wracking situations if students don't feel prepared. I wanted to be a peer mentor so that I can offer as much advice and support to students preparing for co-op so that the program remains exciting and fun.

Where was your previous co-op?
This Fiction Management, Shore Fire Media

What is your favorite TV show to binge watch?
Entourage

Why did you want to become a peer mentor?
Everyone has a different co-op experience each time they do a co-op. I had quite a unique co-op experience first time around and I believe I will be having an even more unique co-op in the fall. I am hoping to pool all this experience and knowledge together to help out other fellow students in making their co-op experience unique and memorable.

Why did you want to become a peer mentor?
I wanted to be a peer mentor to be there for students going through their first co-op experience by sharing knowledge from my past experiences and to be a connection between the student body and Steinbright that I wish had existed when I was a freshman first going through the system.

Where was your previous co-op?
My first co-op was for Sirius XM in Lawrenceville, NJ
My second co-op was for iHeartMedia in San Francisco, CA and I am going back there for my final cycle.

What is your favorite TV show to binge watch?
I binge watch How I Met your Mother if I’m in a comedy mood, One Tree Hill if I’m in a lighthearted drama kind of mood, or Supernatural if I want a bit of both.

Why did you want to become a peer mentor?
Being a Westphal student, my co-op experience was very different than most other Drexel students. I really wanted to find a way to help other Westphal students with the entire co-op process so they know what to expect.

Where was your previous co-op?
I worked for Dixon Photography in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. It is a commercial photography studio where I was able to explore different aspects of the business such as photo assisting, styling and retouching.
