Meet the Peer Advisors

Peer advisors are available to meet individually with students to address specific questions about the course registration process and academic resources, as well as assist in the development of time management, study skills, and exam preparation strategies, and provide academic resources and referrals as needed.

Peer advisors are available during New Student Orientation to help students prepare for individual meetings with faculty advisors, and maintain a regular presence in the residence halls during the academic year. To schedule a meeting, email all of us at peeradvisors@wesleyan.edu or browse through our bios below and email any of us directly.

Hi! I am Meghan Jain 2018 and I am a rising senior Neuroscience and Behavior (NS&B) major from Chicago, Illinois. I am really excited to be a Peer Advisor and the Intern for Student Academic Resources this coming year. Outside of academics, captain of the Varsity Field Hockey team! I am also involved with the Ski and Snowboard Club, Peer Tutoring, WesMaSS and Research on campus. Outside of campus life, I enjoy going on hikes and to Miller's Pond. This summer, I am working in a lab on campus doing research on eye movements in individuals who have had concussions.

Haley Brumberger 2020

haley brumberger

Hi! My name is Haley Brumberger, and I am a member of the Class of 2020 here at Wesleyan. I am an English and Earth & Environmental Science double major -- and a minor in the IDEAS (Integrated Design, Engineering, and Applied Science) program -- from a suburb outside of Philadelphia, PA. I am a huge Flyers fan (to be honest, I am just a huge hockey fan in general), and I am a captain of the Wesleyan Club Ice Hockey Team. I am also -- in addition to being an Academic Peer Advisor -- a Writing Mentor and a Brother of the Co-Ed fraternity on campus, Psi Upsilon. I took a gap year before coming to Wesleyan, and it was a life-changing experience (please feel free to ask me about my year off; it is something I love to talk about). When I arrived at Wesleyan after my gap year, I was pretty committed to pursuing Physics as a major. However, Wesleyan's flexible curriculum allowed me to explore all the different areas of study that I am interested in -- Studio Art, English, Environmental Science, and Math, to name a few -- leading me to realize that I am more excited and passionate about other subjects. Anyway, I would love to answer any questions, address any concerns, or provide some advice on or insight into any problems you may have, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me at hbrumberger@wesleyan.edu. I look forward to meeting you in the fall! Welcome to Wes!


Jackie Leete 2019

jackie leete

My name is Jackie Leete 2019, and I am a returning Academic Peer Advisor! I am a senior from Fairfield, Iowa majoring in Neuroscience & Behavior. However, I am not only interested in all things STEM, I also love art and the social sciences, so I have taken a variety of studio art classes at Wes, as well as psychology and sociology courses. My favorite extracurricular activity is Wesleyan Science Outreach, in which I volunteer weekly with a group of Wesleyan students at local elementary schools to teach science lessons. Some of my other interests are baking pies and hiking the national parks. I am looking forward to working with the class of 2022 (and transfers!) during New Student Orientation, and meeting with students throughout the year. If you have any specific questions about Wes, or any general questions/concerns about your transition to college, please reach out to me at jleete@wesleyan.edu.

Hello everyone! My name is Rachel Chung 2020, and I was born and raised in Hong Kong. I'm double majoring in Government & Economics as well as minoring in Data Analysis. I transferred from New York University after my freshman year and also took a gap semester doing internships in Hong Kong while enrolled at Wes.

I also enjoy dancing and have done dance shows with TERP and Wesleyan's Kpop Dance Group. This upcoming academic year, I'll also be doing Wesleyan's Non-Profit Board Residency Program, a unique program that places students on the board of a local non-profit. In the past, I've helped with research at the Wesleyan Media Project, which analyses political TV advertisements, and the Traveler's Lab, which conducts medieval research with data analysis.

Taylor Dillon 2019

taylor dillon

Hi! I'm Taylor Dillon 2019, a rising senior from North Carolina (though I grew up in everyone's favorite state--New Jersey). I'm a Psychology, Neuroscience & Behavior, and Science in Society Program triple-major, but I've also taken courses in Italian Studies, Theater, and Mathematics. Like most students, I came into college thinking I'd be pre-med, but decided to take a different route, so if you're considering pre-med, but aren't completely sure, we can set up an academic plan that keeps your options open and works for you. Whether it's your first year at Wes or you're a returning student, I hope I can help you take full advantage of the open curriculum! Outside of peer advising, I work as an interviewer and tour guide at the Office of Admission, am an active member of Alpha Delta Phi, a research assistant in a psychology lab, and love going to the film series. I also volunteer at Middlesex Hospital and tutor students in Middletown, so if you want to get involved in the greater Middletown community, definitely reach out. My email is tdillon@wesleyan.edu. Feel free to contact me or another peer advisor for all your academic questions and concerns because we're here to help!
