Meet Peer Educator Cori!

Fun fact: Cori loves the outdoors. She loves the outdoors because it usually means she’s being active, which she really likes to do. Also, the fresh air makes her really happy!

Meet Peer Educator Sarah!


Sarah is a Senior second semester Peer Educator. She started in the Spring with Cori!

Major: Communication/Social Interaction- Sarah isn’t entirely sure what she wants to do after graduating in May. She hopes to work for a not-for-profit organization for a while and then perhaps move on to higher education. As long as she is working with people she is happy, which is why she loves peer education.

Favorite part of peer education: Forming connections- she loves talking to SUNY Oswego students during outreach, open Mic, and other events. She also enjoys meeting staff and faculty at the school. One of her favorite aspects of the Peer Educator position is when students recognize her after having talked to her.

Fun fact: She is also an RA in Seneca and a Writing Center tutor- she likes to be busy but she still leaves time for friends and Netflix.

Favorite show: Gilmore Girls- she has watched the entire series 4 times and cannot wait for the new season coming out later this year!
