Meet your Peer Guide Leader - Elena


Name: Elena

Department: School of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures

Course: Liberal Arts with a Language Year Abroad (Italian)

Hobbies: I absolutely love being apart of the RHUL Hoop and Pole Fitness Society. I would recommend everyone comes and has a go, it is so much fun. I also love going to the gym and attending the yoga and pilates classes we have here on campus. 

Why did you want to be a Peer Guide Leader?: I found my first few weeks at uni really difficult, knowing that there was someone I could reach out to was really lovely and reassuring. I hope that I will be able to make others transition to university be as relaxing and as exciting as possible.

How can having a Peer Guide help a first year student?: University is a completely new environment and for many, like myself, it can be rather daunting. Having someone there who can answer questions is really useful. I wished that I had made use of this programme when I first started. Whether you use the service once, often or not at all is up to you, but we will always be there to offer a hand.
