AAP Peer Mentors
“The Peer Mentors were extremely supportive and very easy to talk to. They become your friends. They are in the same boat as you, students at UArts.”
All first-year AAP students are matched with a Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors are continuing AAP students who are selected through a competitive application process. Peer Mentors serve as orientation leaders during the AAP Connect Program and stay in touch with each student in their group throughout their first year. They coordinate group social activities, connect new students to the UArts community, and host the Free Wednesday lunches.

Junior, Vocal Performance
Hey everyone! My name is Nick Trawick and I am a junior Vocal major with a minor in Music Education. I’m a born and raised Philly native. As a vocalist I obviously love to sing, but also have a strong interest in musical theatre and jazz tunes. I also have an obsession with pandas and tumblr.
I became involved in AAP my freshman year. Accepting their invitation to join the program has been one of the best choices I’ve made since coming to UArts. Through the program I was able to meet so many amazing people who I’ve grown very close to over the past couple of years. Having been so inspired from AAP, I jumped at the opportunity to become a Peer Mentor. I hope to show you guys the awesomeness of AAP. I am only a click away via Facebook or email, so don’t hesitate to contact me. I cannot wait to meet you guys this summer! Welcome UArts Class of 2017!
