Peer Academic Consultants

Peer Academic Consultants (PACs) are student leaders, within Academic Services, who are passionate about helping peers develop the academic skills necessary to become successful students. PACs offer study skills support to undergraduate students through one-on-one meetings. Students will work with a Peer Academic Consultant to develop not only effective study habits but also strong time management and organizational skills to help achieve academic and personal success. PACs are available via appointments.

PACs can discuss a variety of academic success topics, such as:

  • Understanding Your Syllabus
  • Note-Taking & Textbook Reading Strategies
  • Learning Styles
  • Communicating with Faculty
  • Study Strategies & Techniques
  • Time Management
  • Setting Goals
  • Test Preparation

Meet our PACs!

Hi, my name is Emmily Eccles and I am a sophomore at UMW. I plan on majoring in English. I am from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I love to read in my free time as well as go hiking. I firmly believe that a Slurpee is a drink for all seasons of the year. If you do not, that’s okay, we can put our differences aside and work easily together.
