Peer Academic Advisors

Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) are an integral part of the advising community at Rice, and have been nationally recognized by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA)! PAAs…

Your PAAs live right alongside you in your residential college! They serve as familiar and approachable contacts who can answer questions and point you in the right direction if they cannot answer a detailed question.

Who are my PAAs image

Our PAAs are led by our outstanding Student Directors of Peer Academic Advising. For 2021-2022, Akshaya Venkatesh and Jessica Su are leading the entire group of PAAs across campus. Questions and comments can be directed to them at paa@rice.edu.
