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 mentorMatthew Ammons

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? I enjoy mud volleyball during Welcome Week and football games!



Peer mentorBrittany Bowers

Major: Biochemistry

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 Sport Science

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? Never be afraid to ask for help or to try anything new. People are more than willing to help and you should try to enrich your college experience by being involved and active in the classroom and community.


Peer mentorHeather Colvin

Major: Biochemistry

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? Call home often. It's amazing how a familiar, loving voice can make you feel better!


Peer mentorRoy Davis

Major: Biology

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? Though there are many, one of my best memories comes from having Ornithology. The class was exciting, and it led me to know exactly what I wanted to do with my degree. It helped to put me on the path that I am on now.


Peer mentorMatt Fowler

Major: Clinical Research

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? One of my favorite memories at Campbell was being at a men's basketball game that was shown live on ESPN!


Peer mentorBlake Gelderman

Major: Business Administration

Hometown: Pantego, NC

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? When schoolwork (and life in general) gets rough, ask God for help and he will pull you through. When he does, don't forget to look back at past difficulties and see that God gave you the strength to endure and that he wants you to trust him in all circumstances.


Peer mentorJordyn Gum

Major: Communication Studies, Broadcasting and Electronic concentration, with a Management minor

Hometown: Seaford, DE

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? The sooner you get plugged in with campus activities and organizations, the better. When you become involved on campus, you begin to feel a part of the Campbell culture, and it will make the transition to college life easier.


Peer mentorNicole Hernandez

Major: Kinesiology

Hometown: Holly Springs, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? One of my favorite Campbell memories is when the Girl's Club Soccer team beat Elon in one of our first games together! It was a fun game and it created many bonds between us that will last far after we graduate.


Peer mentorCourtney Jennings

Major: Biology, Pre-PA

Hometown: Clayton, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite Campbell tradition is probably Midnight Breakfast. It's so much fun to line up with your friends to get a free t-shirt and get food as a last minute break before exams really begin.


Peer mentorAmanda Nguyen

Major: Biology, Pre-Dental

Hometown: Wake Forest, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? 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 mentorJuli Osborne

Major: Biology, Pre-Professional

Hometown: Kingsport, TN

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? At the end of my freshman year, I went to the Freshman Block Party with some friends. We got into this huge water balloon fight with everyone! My friends and I played on the Slip N Slide, made t-shirts, and got a bunch of snacks.


Peer mentorHunter Parda

Major: Political Science, Pre-Law

Hometown: Bunnlevel, NC

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? Use your planner! I overbooked my time when I was a freshman because I had no clue when stuff was due. Using a planner has gotten me this far.


Peer mentorMaisoon Qassem

Major: Biology, Pre-Med

Hometown: Garner, NC

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? This is the year for you to discover Campbell University and thoroughly explore it. Take advantage of this and find your niche in the creek!


Peer mentorKirsten Renz

Major: Biochemistry, Pre-PA

Hometown: Greensboro, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? I'm still in the process of making my best memories here, but to name a few: late night Cookout runs, studying in the library with friends during finals week, and Creek Coffee trips.


Peer mentorKatlyn Rogers

Major: Middle Grades Education

Hometown: Mount Olive, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? The best experience I had at Campbell was "dorm living" my freshman year. I met so many friends that I still have today and it made my first year so much more fun!


Peer mentorLaura Scott

Major: Biochemistry and Math

Hometown: Milan, MI

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? Go out and be engaged at Campbell, in the community, and in life in general! Too many times we get caught up in our own little bubble, our own little world. There are so many people to meet and to learn from. Meeting new people and trying new things will broaden your horizons and change your perspective. It's humbling, exciting, and through those experiences you find yourself.


Peer mentorRebecca Sheinfeld

Major: Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in Psychology

Hometown: Weston, FL

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? My favorite memory is playing my first ever collegiate lacrosse game in the first ever game in the program’s history my freshman year. I was able to look into the stands and see over 1,000 people cheering for us. It was the greatest experience knowing that I had Campbell written on my jersey, and I get the privilege to represent the greatest University in the world.


Peer mentorChelsea Sumner

Major: Clinical Research

Hometown: Raleigh, NC

What is your favorite memory from your time at Campbell? There isn't one best experience or memory for me at Campbell. My best Campbell moments stem from the time I spend with the people I've met here at Campbell, my lifelong friends and extended family who encourage, support and inspire me. They have made me cry from laughing too hard, wiped my tears when things have been rough, prayed for me in times of need and been with me through everything good & bad. I wouldn't trade them and all of our memories for the world.


Peer mentorDrew Taylor

Major: Psychology

Hometown: Concord, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? My favorite tradition is Campbell University's annual student-led Relay for Life. The entire school comes together to raise awareness and fundraise for the fight against cancer. The experience is moving to watch survivors and loved ones remember those who have fought cancer in the past, and support those whose fight continues.


Peer mentorAmanda Wesley

Major: English with a minor in Communication Studies with a concentration in Public Relations

Hometown: Raleigh, NC

What is your biggest piece of advice for freshmen? Know that you are not alone because everyone around is going through or has experienced similar emotions and transitional difficulties that you have at one point or another. You have the opportunity to choose to enjoy where you are, who you are with, and what you are surrounded by.


Peer mentorDani Wind

Major: Biochemistry and Chemistry

Hometown: New Bern, NC

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? Going to the first football game! That is definitely one game with a ton of Camel Pride present. It's truly a college experience!

What is your favorite Campbell tradition? Definitely the Medallion Ceremony! This beautiful ceremony welcomes Campbell Freshmen from day one, and I really love that! It's pretty rare to find such a quality at other universities.
