Peer Advisors

Chemical Engineering Peer Advisors

The Chemical Engineering Peer Advisors (ChEPAs) are a service organization that provides peer-to-peer advising while at the same time helping the participating students improve their planning, communication, and leadership skills.

We provide academic advising sessions throughout the semester (attending one is required in order to remove the hold on ONE UF to register for classes), help with any questions you may have regarding chemical engineering and offer tours for prospective students.

Under the supervision of Cynthia Sain, the Academic Coordinator, we aim to help students have a positive and successful learning experience at the University of Florida.

Please email: if you have any questions about the department or if you are a prospective student wanting to schedule a tour.

ChEPAs are devoted to answering your questions and showing you what Chemical Engineering at UF has to offer. Our group is composed of diverse and experienced upper-division ChemE students ready to help and answer any questions you have regarding scheduling, minors, balancing school and a part-time job, upcoming events within the department, professional events, greek-life, research, personal obstacles, and any other academic related concerns.
