Hi, I’m Brooke! I’m a third year student majoring in Early Childhood/Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics and a minor in Biology. I’m a member of TBA Improv and Alpha Phi Omega community service fraternity. I’m also a peer mentor for first year students. I’m so incredibly excited to be working at the Center for Student Success as a Peer Academic Success Coach because I have worked Orientation for the last two years and it has shown me how much I love helping other students succeed here at New Paltz! In my free time I love hanging out with pals, napping, and cracking jokes that are moderately funny!

I am an English Major with a Creative Writing Minor, and finally a senior after a long and tumultuous college journey. When I’m not writing or drawing, I’m working on or reading material for Dungeons and Dragons. I hope one day I can work on it officially, but for now I’ll focus on my novel writing. I am also transgender and Jewish, and very involved in both communities. I am always happy to help, and look forward to offering whatever services you may need. 


Emely is from the Dominican Republic and is a student here at SUNY New Paltz


Hey! My name is Emely, I am from the Dominican Republic and I am a student here at SUNY New Paltz. I am going into my Junior year with a major in Psychology and a double minor in Women Studies and Sociology. I am currently a Psychological Statistics subject tutor and also a PASC (peer academic success coach) member at the CSS. I was persuaded to take on the role of a PASC because I was also a Peer Mentor for the EOP program my sophomore year where I enjoyed advising and mentoring my fellow mentee’s. Throughout my college experience I have learned that time management, organizational, and studying skills are imperative and I am more than open to helping my peers master these qualities. I am looking forward to encouraging my peers to strive for the best and to remind them of their potential.



Hi! My name is Kate (she/her/hers) and I am a junior majoring in Communication Disorders and Linguistics. I am also a Peer Advisor at the CSS! I am excited to help students navigate campus resources and make the most out of their time at New Paltz. I love working as a Peer Advisor because of the personal interactions I get to have with other students. Please feel free to stop in and chat! Outside of school, I like to be outside, work out, and go to coffee shops. I hope to one day work as a speech-language pathologist and explore a wide variety of fields. I look forward to meeting you at the CSS!



Hello! My name is Sarah and my pronouns are she, her, and hers. I am currently a sophomore English major and Political Science Minor. I am a peer advisor at the Center for Student Success. I wanted to join the CSS because I strongly value academic success and I hope to support those who seek help. I have a passion for traveling and politics. During my free time I enjoy hiking, running, writing, and spending time with friends. After graduating from SUNY New Paltz, I aspire to go to law school. I hope to see you soon! 



Hello everyone! My name is Sydney and I use she/her pronouns. I am a senior with a marketing major and a theater minor. I am excited to work as a peer advisor so I may share the knowledge I’ve gained through my experiences at SUNY New Paltz with other students so that college life will become a little less stressful! In my free time, I am one of the co-presidents of Alpha Psi Ecdysia and I put a lot of energy and heart into creating the best shows the club can offer. I love my time at SUNY New Paltz, because it has given me all of the tools necessary to hopefully spend my future as a fashion brand manager by day and a show producer by night!
