Meet The Peer Coaches

Peer Coaches are experienced University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus upperclassmen who serve on the staff of the Compass Student Experience Office. As student staff members, Peer Coaches work with a team of professional staff members to provide educational and leadership development opportunities for the USF St. Petersburg campus student body. Peer Coaches provide guidance for first time in college students, second-year students, and transfer students to succeed at USF St. Petersburg campus through one-on-one coaching, networks, and engaging programs.

Each incoming first-year student and transfer student will be paired with a Peer Coach that can help them navigate their first year here at USF St. Petersburg campus. Second-Year students have the chance to opt into having a Peer Coach for their following year. There will be opportunities to meet all of the Peer Coaches during move-in weekend, which is filled with many fun events and activities. For questions about the Peer Coaching Program, email usfsp-compass@usf.edu. Interested in becoming a peer coach? See our recruitment page for details.
