  "As a Peer Scholar I have had the opportunity to develop my ability for peer instruction while expanding my knowledge of best practices in preparation for graduate school. This role has served as a resource as I develop my own post-graduate plans, allowing me greater access to the on campus, cohort, and alumni networks of ACE, but also access to one-on-one advising from our program coordinator, Mr. Neal. The Peer Scholar role has allowed me to grow in my leadership skills, working not only as a peer instructor but also as a mentor with an increased level of accountability."
