Although there are no Statistics Peer Advisors, students in the Statistics Undergraduate Student Association (SUSA) may be able to answer questions you have about the student experience in Statistics courses. They hold academic, professional and social events throughout the fall and spring semesters. Visit https://susa.berkeley.edu/ and contact the officers to add to their mailing list or like the SUSA Facebook Page.
There is also an unofficial Statistics Facebook Group at Berkeley where you may post questions to other students. Please note that this group is not moderated by the Statistics Department.
