This service also tracks the number of times the short URL has been used, so statistical data can be provided.

Description: A web application that allows select Pamplin upperclassmen to act as peer advisors to other Pamplin students for issues pertaining to their interests and individual career paths. Instead of meeting with an Undergraduate Programs advisor, the student meets with one of the peer advisors and this web application allows the peer advisor to record the details of the session, which is then saved as part of the student's record in the Pamplin Advising System.

Intended For Use By: Pamplin Student Peer Advisors
