Madison Advising Peers

COB Madison Advising Peers (MAP) are College of Business students who care about their fellow students and are committed to helping them achieve their college goals. MAPs work in conjunction with the Academic Success Center by providing supplemental academic advising information and assist other COB students who may have general advising questions, but don't know where to go.   A MAP can be a supportive and friendly resource for students who feel overwhelmed and confused.

Advising Topics MAPs Can Assist Students With:
  • Navigating MyMadison
  • Class Registration
  • Declaring a major/minor
  • Connecting with advisor and professors
  • Study abroad opportunities
  • How to be successful in the CoB

Cory Petinga

Cory PetingaI am a senior double majoring in Management and Public Policy Administration.  Because I love being involved, I am a part of many different organizations around campus including Future Business Leaders of America, Student Ambassadors, Phi Alpha Delta, Camp Kesem, and the Alternative Break Program.  In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, playing the saxophone, hanging out with friends, playing video games, doing service, traveling, and just being adventurous. I am super excited to be working as a MAP for a second year, and can't wait to answer any advising questions you might have.

Bobby Gaertner

Bobby GaertnerI am a senior here at JMU studying Finance with a minor in Economics.  I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA, where I have grown up all my life, but Virginia is definitely my second home.  Some facts about me are that I am on the JMU Club Golf team, I am a huge Netflix/HBA fan, and I also love sports, so I try to represent all of the Pittsburgh sports teams whenever I can.

Hannah Cuya

Hannah CuyaI am a senior Management major from Mechanicsville, VA.  I participated in the semester in Antwerp program in spring 2017, and definitely recommend it!  Some fun facts: I'm a cat person, and I'm double jointed in my fingers!  I cannot wait to meet with the students this fall. Go Dukes!

Nina Berry

Nina BerryI am from Stafford, VA and in my senior year at JMU.  I've had a few different majors declared since I've been here, but I will graduate with a BBA in International Business and a BA in Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish).  I have two dogs, German Shepherds, but little dogs freak me out a bit.  My younger sister Rachel is my best friend, and I'm exceited to say she's starting her first year here at JMU as an ISAT major.  I've wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park since I read in high school that it's over a super volcano that is due to erupt.  I traveled to Spain this past summer.
