The Peer Tutoring Center is located within the COBE Academic Advising Center.

The Academic Advising Center in the College of Business and Economics has opened the Peer Tutoring Center within its office on the second floor of the COBE Building.

The Peer Tutoring Center, which opened during the spring semester, provides a central location for COBE's Ambassadors to tutor other business students.

The COBE Ambassadors group is made up of approximately 25 COBE students whose purpose is to provide a student perspective at various campus and COBE functions, such as major/minor fairs, Highlander Days and open houses. Their duties also include serving as a mentor to COBE students, said COBE Advising Coordinator Nasim Schwab.

The center was established to give the COBE Ambassadors and the students being tutored a location to meet without having to locate an available room inside the COBE Building. "They struggled to find space sometimes when all the breakout rooms and spaces were taken," Schwab explained.

Inside the Peer Tutoring Center are three desks, office supplies and a whiteboard.

COBE Ambassadors are juniors and seniors who have successfully completed pre-business requirements and are in a full business major. To be considered for membership, students must be nominated by a faculty member, a current COBE Ambassador or COBE Advising Center staff.

The COBE Ambassadors program officially launched in the Fall 2013 and adopted a constitution Spring 2014.
