Subject Line: Find your PAL and complete your Degree Planner in my.SMU
We’re officially in week 4! Is this semester flying by, or is it just us? SMU in Four hopes you’re getting into the swing of things, but if not, have you considered finding a Peer Academic Leader (PAL)? PALs are a diverse group of undergraduate students at SMU who have been dedicating their time to help their peers navigate academics.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to meet them, have no fear! They have plenty of upcoming events on the books to help you succeed.
All students are expected to use Degre Planner, so visit one of the PAL workshops this month to start, update, and complete your plan! Degree Planner workshops are on the following dates. RSVP’s are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome:
- September 18th, 2023, at Hughes-Trigg 226 from 5pm-7pm (they’ll have tacos!).
- September 21st from 7-8pm at the Virginia-Snider Commons 2nd Floor Lounge
- September 29th from 2:30pm-3:30pm at Hughes-Trigg Student Center 121
If you can’t make it to any of these, book a one-on-one appointment with a PAL during their office hours, and they’re happy to help! Whether it’s at Laura Lee Blanton Building, Suite 100, or anywhere else on campus, they’re excited to PAL around!
