Peer Academic Liaison Program


The Peer Academic Liaisons (PALs) are upper-class students who assist first-year residents.

This peer-to-peer program focuses on academic engagement and success at Southern Miss. The PALs help first-year students acclimate to college life, assist with classes, and any questions that these new students might have about college or Southern Miss.
