Peer Advisement Program

The Psychology Department Peer Advisors’ mission is to offer fellow undergraduate psychology students advisement on a variety of topics including resume and curriculum vita development, personal statement assistance, graduate school searches, departmental opportunities, campus involvement, and general course advisement from a student perspective. We maintain and post a weekly list of events on the “Undergraduate Psychology at Georgia State University” Facebook page. These events range from activities in the department of psychology, Georgia State University or the community at large. If we are notified of any job or internship opportunities, we also put a special notification on the Facebook page and students may contact us for more information.

Please stop by during office hours or email the advisor for an appointment!

My name is Carla Vizcarra and I’m currently a junior majoring in psychology. I am more interested in the counseling aspect of psychology and I hope to work in an elementary or middle school environment as either a school counselor or a school psychologist. Children have always been something that brighten my day! In my free time I love to spend time with my friends, read and roller skate.

I’m currently a senior majoring in Psychology.  After graduating in May, I plan to take a year to work in a mental health setting to gain hands-on experience (and to catch up on all the sleep I lost during college) before I apply to graduate programs in clinical or counseling psychology. My hobbies are Netflixing, sleeping, and reading.
