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.

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition is New Student Convocation. This was a motivational ceremony which inspired me to continue to move forward academically.

Peer mentorDavid Cowan

Major: Homeland Security and Spanish

Hometown: Lexington, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition would be the Christmas Tree Lighting. For a whole semester, you have spent time with a new group of friends away from home. For me, this night of worship and then tree lighting was the point at which I realized how those friends had become a family.

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 mentorCourtney Davis

Major: Health Communication and Public Health

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition has to be the Christmas Tree Lighting simply because it accentuates a sense of unity. Everyone gathers around the tree, sings songs, and drinks hot chocolate. It is a special time to celebrate the birth of Christ with all who come out to participate.


Peer mentorDiane Ford

Major: Economics, Pre-Law

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition is Freshman Worship after Move-In Day. It’s a significant day for incoming freshmen and their families because it shows our commitment to Christ from the very beginning and how our worship services usually look.

What is your biggest piece of advice for new students? Try to make friends that have the same aspirations as you in order to achieve any goals that you set for yourself as a student. Everyone wants to have fun in college, but it’s also important to do well in your classes.

Peer mentorElizabeth Patti

Major: Psychology

Hometown: Washington, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition is Move-In Day. So many different ministry groups, clubs, and athletic teams 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 welcomed!


Peer mentorVictoria Person

Major: Biology, Pre-Med

Peer mentorAmber Puffenbarger

Major: Biology, Pre-Med

Hometown: Stuarts Draft, VA

What is your biggest piece of advice for new students? 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 mentorRachel Rock

Major: Communication Studies

Hometown: Mertztown, PA

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? My favorite memory, so far, is my first day of classes freshman year. I was so nervous to start, but my professors made the classes interesting and I was able to make friends who made college classes less intimidating.


Peer mentorMason Simpson

Major: Healthcare Management

Hometown: Monroe, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? I love the Street Fair. You get to see the clubs on campus, local businesses involved in the community, and old friends. Plus I love free stuff, and there is plenty of it at Street Fair.


Peer mentorSarah Smith

Major: Biology, Pre-PA

Hometown: Jasper, GA

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? It’s hard to pick just one memory. I think I would have to say my favorite is one rainy weekend freshman year when my suitemates and I had a puzzles and karaoke day. It was just something simple like building a puzzle or “harmonizing” over any song we could think of, but it was a great bonding moment for us that we still talk about today. 


Peer mentorGaby Stewart

Major: Biology, Pre-PA

Hometown: Charlotte, NC

What is your biggest piece of advice for new students? The biggest piece of advice I would give new students is to not be afraid to talk to people and network. There are so many awesome people in the Campbell community and you might not get a chance to meet them if you don’t take a chance and get outside of your comfort zone.


Peer mentorJenna Whittington

Major: Biology, Pre-PA

Hometown: Dunn, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell thus far? 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. It was exciting and scary at the same time knowing that I was officially on my own, but I was ready to start my journey here at Campbell University.


Peer mentorGabrielle Worthy

Major: Exercise & Sports Science

Hometown: Charlotte, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell thus far? My favorite memory thus far was when Campbell hosted the Big South Men’s Basketball tournament on campus last year. As a student worker in the Ticketing Office, I had the opportunity to work the event. I was able to meet people involved with coordinating the tournament and I even got to interact with some of the teams. It was a great opportunity to show everyone how Campbell Proud I was and how I enjoyed serving in the Athletic Department.
