It’s Spring!

Hiya! I’m Cassie, your one and only PWP peer mentor for the Spring 2021 semester. Sorry for the late post this time around; there’s been a lot going on lately.

For one, Alyssa graduated at the end of the Fall 2020 semester! She had a long and distinguished career as a PWP peer mentor, and I’ll definitely miss working with her. Since she’s so darn irreplaceable, we’re literally not going to replace her; I’ll be working alone this semester.

Due to current government health and safety guidelines, I’m going to continue with the “virtual office hours” system via Webex Meetings for at least one more semester. I do have new hours posted on the homepage, but this’ll otherwise work exactly as it has in the past.

If this is your first time participating in the PWP peer mentoring service, or if you could use a refresher, here’s a step-by-step guide detailing how to set up a meeting with me:

1. E-mail me to request a meeting. My e-mail is If you know in advance when you’d like to come, I always appreciate a forewarning. However, you’re also welcome to just email me during any shift(s) in which you’d like to meet.

2. Look for an e-mail reply with a link to join the meeting. If you email me during one of my shifts and I’m not already meeting with someone, I’ll reply right away. Otherwise, you’ll hear from me a bit later.

3. When it’s meeting time, click on the green “Join Meeting” button. It’ll take you to the Webex site, where you can choose to open the Webex application. If you don’t yet have the Webex application on your device, you may be prompted to install it. If you’re not prompted to install it, you can do so here. However, if you don’t want to install it, you can use Webex directly through your browser. There should be a link at the bottom of page saying something like: “Having trouble opening the desktop app? Join from your browser.”

4. If I’m not yet in the meeting when you arrive, please wait for me to join it. I’ll be with you as soon as I can!

That’s all, folks! If you have any questions about this or literally anything PWP, feel free to reach out to me via my university email (listed above). Until then, I hope you have a great spring and finish out the academic year strong!
