Peer Educator Mariana Solis said the students of that organization know all too well that they are known as “the condom people” around campus.
Among their high-profile events each year are education on safe sex, during which they distribute free condoms, and free AIDS testing throughout the school year.
These students provide more than just free prophylactics.
Some Peer Educators also support disabled students by assisting them to navigate the campus to get to classes.
“We are much more than just the condom people; we are a big support group,” Solis said.
Peer Educators also provides an ear for students stressing on anything from test anxiety and time management to domestic abuse or depression.
Adviser Patricia Sanchez said, “If a student is overwhelmed and doesn’t feel comfortable speaking to a counselor, stop by and speak to a Peer Educator.”
Peer Educators are available 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday in Room 144 of Moody Learning Center.
