What Is The PEAR?

The PEAR, or Peer Educator Activity Room, is a space located on the second floor of the Student Success Center next to the Centennial Scholars Program office.  It is specifically designed to foster creative problem solving for departments in the Student Success Center.

Who Can Use The PEAR?

Faculty, staff, and students can use the PEAR.

All departments housed in the Student Success Center have access to the general resources in the PEAR. The cabinet labeled with specific departments are designated for that specific department's personal materials and we ask users of the PEAR to respect the indicated cabinets.

Students not associated with a Student Success Center department are not permitted to use any of the materials or resources in the PEAR, but are allowed to use the PEAR as extra study space.
