Fellows

The Sid Academic Fellows are a group of upperclassmen dedicated to fostering academic excellence and an intellectual environment within our college. We provide free academic assistance on a regular basis through review sessions, "office hours" in the Sid commons, and individual tutoring by request. We aim to be accessible, knowledgeable, and approachable to enhance the academic life here at Sid. 

Unlike the PAAs, Fellows do not specialize in academic advising, meaning they are not generally experts on class selection or scheduling. Rather, the Academic Fellows are people who have taken and aced that difficult introductory course which keeps you up late on a Saturday night, and they want to help you succeed in it as well. Feel free to contact any of your Fellows whenever you may need them!

PAAs

Serving as liaisons for the Office of Academic Advising, PAAs are students at each college that have been broadly trained in numerous areas of academics here at Rice.  Generally speaking, your college PAA team coordinates numerous group and individual activities that attempt to strengthen the academic vitality of your residential college. You may find yourself seeking the advice of a PAA about:

  • General graduation requirements
  • Specific classes
  • Research opportunities
  • Studying abroad
  • Professional school requirements
  • Or any topic as it relates to academics

Remember, even if a particular PAA cannot answer each and every one of your detailed questions, they can at least serve as a helpful resource to point you in the right direction of someone else that can.  As you become more familiar with academics here at Rice, we hope you begin to understand that academics, learning, and especially advising are all ongoing dynamic conversations that involve multiple perspectives and not just a prescription for registrations.

PCAs

Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) are a group of student volunteers who are selected through an application and interview process. They serve as ambassadors to undergraduates and play a valuable role in supporting the Center for Career Development. PCAs reinforce the knowledge, skills, and resources offered through the CCD. PCAs are specially trained to assist you with the following topics:

-Resume and cover letter reviews
-Job and internship basics
-Using our online resources (Handshake, Optimal Resume, Vault, etc.)
-Understanding CCD services

Each residential college is represented, so PCAs are easily accessible and available to answer your questions in person or through email.
