John D. Mittelstaedt Center for Academic Advising and Business Student Success

Meet our Peer Advisors

In addition to our hard-working Academic Advisors, we have our student Peer Advisors who are dedicated to helping everyone in the School of Business Administration. Our Peer Advisors are made up of business students of all majors and grades.

The Peer Advisors are a crucial aspect of the day-to-day operations in the Mittelstaedt Center. You can find an SBA Peer Advisor managing the front desk where they are prepared to answer any questions as well as take phone calls, schedule appointments, sign students in for appointments, and help support the Academic Advising staff. You can also find a Peer advisor working with advisees in their Introduction to Business class. Here, they act as a mentor to help make their transition from high school to college easier. Peer Advisors can also be teaching assistants, as well as give tours to prospective students and their families.

No matter the task, our Peer Advisors are always here to help!

Dan Honquest

Meet our lead Peer Advisor, Dan Honquest! Dan is a senior MIS and Finance double major from Elmhurst, IL. Dan chose UD because of the experiential learning opportunities in major coursework and the relationship that exists between students and professors. He has loved the culture ever since he visited campus for the first time and is very lucky to have had the chance to meet all different kinds of people these past few years. Ever since his start in the Mittelsteadt Center back in 2019, Dan has found many things he loves about the role.

“I chose to be a peer advisor because I truly enjoy helping people, especially other students. It is always a great feeling seeing how grateful first years are for our help”. -Dan Honquest
