2016-2017 Peer Mentors
Hi! My name is Tonie and my pronouns are they/them. I'm going to be the Peer Mentor for Joel Muraco's "That's So Gay!" seminar. I'm a senior majoring in English and pursuing and Individual Major in Underrepresented Youth Development, with possible minors in First Nations Studies and Women's and Gender Studies. I'm also a tutor at the Writing Center and an intern at the Pride Center, UWGB's resource for LGBTQIA+ students and allies. I love cats, food, and the color green. I'm really excited to be returning as a Peer Mentor and I can't wait to meet you all!
I am the peer mentor for the Viking course with Dr. Sherman. I am a super senior with a major in human biology with an emphasis in nutrition, a major in Spanish as well as a minor in chemistry. This is my second time as a peer mentor for the GPS program. I also work in the GAC lab on campus (so stop by and say Hi!) I fell in love with being a peer mentor and am so excited to be able to come back to this position! In the small amount of free time I have, I enjoy reading, playing some video games, walking the trails around campus, and cooking.
Hi, I’m Carmen! I am a senior majoring in Political Science and Democracy & Justice Studies and minoring in Sociology. I enjoy studying the ways in which politics and culture influence one another in different populations. In my spare time I like playing video games and catching up on pop culture. I am so grateful to all of the wonderful people at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay for making my time here rewarding on every level, and I hope that my work as a Peer Mentor can help others to have a rewarding experience here as well!
Hey there! My name is Mack Dunn, and I am very excited to be with the GPS program this year! I am a super senior (5th-year) majoring in Human Biology with a double emphasis in Nutritional Science and Exercise Science, a minor in Chemistry, and a coaching certification on the side. I plan to go on to become a Registered Dietitian and eventually a Sports Dietitian, working with young athletes to fuel and train their body right. I’ve been involved on campus as a Resident Assistant, Community Advisor, Student Ambassador, Peer Mentor, and a member of multiple student organizations and I’m always looking for more things to do. When I’ve got some free time, I love to spend it with my friends, play sports, get involved with Intramurals, cook, bike, hike, camp, and play some Madden.
HI! I am a senior from Lakeville, Minnesota majoring in Communication with emphasis in Public Relations, Organizational Communication, and Journalism. I will be the GPS peer mentor for Dr. Meinhardt’s Art & Science First Year Seminar! I am looking forward to meeting new students and providing them with resources and skills needed in order to achieve their goals. One of the best things I did for myself was become involved on campus and in the Green Bay community. This not only allowed me to meet some of my best friends, but also gave me a sense of belonging. In my free time, I enjoy working out, watching sports, and going to Costco.
Hello my name is Andre. People call me Dre or Andre but never Andrew! I'm a senior graduating in the spring of 2017 with a major in Spanish and minors in International Business and Global Studies. One of my favorite activities is traveling. In fact, I liked traveling Europe so much while studying abroad in 2015 that I'm spending the whole summer of 2016 in Europe. While at home on campus you can usually find me in the library, the kress, or biking on the nature trails. I was a student as part of the very first GPS program when I was a freshman and returned to the program to give incoming freshmen the same opportunities!
