About the Meiklejohn Program

Meiklejohns meet with a group of first-years and their faculty advisor regularly over the course of a year. Our 350 peer advisors work to cultivate a dynamic, accessible relationship that benefits all parties involved. Meiklejohns advise students on course selection, study habits, housing, summer internships and research opportunities, navigating the Brown campus and Providence, and social issues. Offering a student perspective on the University experience, Meiklejohn peer advisors generate an informal, open dialogue that proves indispensable to Brown first-years.
