Student Peer Mentors


Alex Cox

Hometown: Willard, Utah
Major: BS Communications Digital Motion Pictures Production Emphasis
Favorite Place to Study: When I lived at the dorms I really liked studying at the library, I like how quiet it is in the library. Now that I live far from campus I just study at my desk, sometimes when I really need to focus i’ll go back to the library.
Best Part About Being a Peer Mentor: I like how rewarding being a Peer Mentor is. It is nice to be here and be able to answer questions that I knew I had when I was a Freshmen. I also like seeing my students decide on majors, it’s cool to see their excitement as we look over classes for the degree they want. It’s nice to be able to work somewhere where you know you are helping others and making a difference in their lives.
