The Academic Center for the Enrichment of Students (ACES) supports University students in becoming successful learners and lifelong leaders.
ACES is centered around three branches that aim to help our students explore their full potential and become confident, engaged citizens in our community and at large.
- Peer Tutors: Our Peer Tutors are tasked with conducting both individual and group tutoring sessions for all members of the student body. No matter what year of study or degree you are pursuing, there is an experienced and knowledgable Peer Tutor waiting to help. While they are all well-versed in specific fields, the Peer Tutors mainly specialize in the study skills, preparation tips, presentation techniques, and more. Peer Tutoring sessions are available in-person and virtually.
- Buddy Mentors: The main purpose of our Buddy Mentors is to serve as a new student’s first line of communication with the student body. In addition, Buddy Mentors play an integral role in the first-year orientation and are responsible for helping to ease new students' transitional needs throughout their first-year and beyond.
- Fellowships: The ACES team is experienced in the world of global fellowship opportunities for undergraduates, graduates, and recent alumni from all degree areas. Whether a summer internship or post-graduate opportunity, our team helps students find the best options available and then guides them through the process - start to finish. At this time, Fellowships sessions are exclusively available virtually.
ACES also collaborates with other student services at the University, such as the Counseling Center, Writing Center, and Career Development Center to develop the study, academic, and organizational skills that will allow students to meet the demands of a higher education institution.
All sessions (Peer Tutor, Buddy Mentors and Fellowships) are arranged by the ACES Coordinator. Interested students are encouraged to email the Center at
