Peer Mentors

CUFS 100 Peer Mentors

The Peer Mentor plays an important role in the CUFS 100 course by serving as a role model and mentor to freshmen students. Peer Mentors are expected to attend all class sessions and assist the instructor by offering their unique perspective of life as a Campbell student. Peer Mentors have a variety of responsibilities including keeping students updated about campus events and activities, organizing out of class activities (i.e. community service events), and assisting the instructor with course planning and classroom management.

Peer mentor Stephanie Bailey

Major: English

Hometown: Stokesdale, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My biggest piece of advice for new students is to be open and flexible in your friendships. College is the perfect place to make friends with shared interests, but also a great place to hang out with people who are different from you, or different from people you hung out with in high school.

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition would have to be the Easter Egg Hunt. Every year I look forward to waking up early to start the hunt! My friends and I always have a competition to see who can find the most eggs, and then we give the extra eggs that we collected to friends/classmates who couldn’t participate in the Easter Egg Hunt.


Peer mentorDiamond Brown

Major: Exercise and Sports Science

Hometown: Charlotte, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My biggest pieces of advice are to not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. You can achieve what you thought was unattainable. Also, when you get involved, it makes your college experience so much better. Finally, if you ever need help, just ask! Campbell is a family that wants everyone to reach their maximum potential!


Peer mentorClaire Carrington

Major: Communication Studies

Hometown: Holly Springs, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? Take some time to understand what works best for you when you're studying and learning for a new class. Every class is different, and every professor has a different teaching style, so give yourself enough time each semester to figure out how to conquer the next class's unique challenges. Know what works for you and arm yourself with strategies like good note-taking and Quizlet. Don't wait too long to do this!


Peer mentorSita Chandra

Major: Health Communication and Spanish

Hometown: Fayetteville, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite tradition is without a doubt, the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony! It's a sweet way to step away from the stress of finals and bring everyone together to sip on hot apple cider and watch the Christmas tree light up as we commemorate the beginning of a loved holiday season!


Peer mentorMorgan Dailey

Major: Biology, Pre-Physician Assistant

Hometown: Fayetteville, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? It was at the medallion ceremony where I felt my life become saturated with orange and black pride. I saw that Campbell cares about me as a person. You can't help but feel pride in your school when they take pride in you.


Peer mentorDiane Ford

Major: Economics, Pre-Law

Peer mentorAmanda Nguyen

Major: Biology, Pre-Dental

Hometown: Wake Forest, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? In my freshman year, I had the opportunity to make superhero capes for the children at the Ronald McDonald House for my service-learning course. Throughout the semester, two classmates and I painted several capes, and at the end of the semester, we got the chance to deliver them to the children. The smiles on their faces when they put the capes on and “became superheroes” was extremely rewarding; I was so thankful to have been a part of that project.


Peer mentorBeth Pandone

Major: Communication Studies

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition is actually Freshman Move-In Day. So many different ministry groups, clubs, and athletes give up their time to help first year students move in to their residence halls. I love being a part of the Campbell community, and this definitely helped me feel welcome!

Peer mentorAmber Puffenbarger

Major: Biology, Pre-Med

Hometown: Stuarts Draft, VA

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My biggest piece of advice would be to not give up just because it seems too hard. We all have those moments when we feel like there's no way we will pass a certain test with the grade we want or that all of the work is just too overwhelming. Difficult doesn't mean impossible! There are so many resources available to us all and Campbell has no shortage of people who care about our success. We must always keep in mind the reasons we chose to continue our education and stay dedicated to our dreams.


Peer mentorKirsten Renz

Major: Biochemistry

Hometown: Greensboro, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? It's hard to choose one memory. I think the whole college experience is just going to be something I will always look back on as one of my favorite times. I have had a lot of great memories at Creek Coffee from just studying and hanging out there over the years.


Peer mentorRachel Rock

Major: Communication Studies, Public Relations Concentration

Hometown: Mertztown, Pennsylvania

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite memory here would be move-in day my freshman year. It was a day full of excitement, new faces, and lots of decorating.

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? With the recent building of the J.A. Campbell statue, a tradition has been spreading around where students stroke the mustache of the statue for good luck! It's the perfect good luck charm, and it does work, I promise!
