Peer Resource Team Taking Applications

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 4, 2011) - Are you looking for a way to get involved and make a difference in the UK community? Then the Peer Resource Team (PRT) just might be right for you!

PRT is currently accepting applications for the 2011-2012 team. The organization helps students get involved on campus, encourages collaboration between existing organizations and provides leadership education resources and services. PRT is looking for students who are excited about being involved on campus and enjoy meeting and speaking to new people.

As a member of PRT, students can expect to work with other students one-on-one to help them find organizations that fit their interests. They will also have the opportunity to facilitate leadership and involvement sessions on campus (e.g. a UK 101 session, speaking with a residence hall, etc). As part of PRT, students will gain familiarity with student organizations and campus resources, work hard in a team setting and have a great time.

Applications can be picked up at the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) or found online at Completed applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18. Please return your application to the CSI Info Desk, 106 Student Center.

For more information, please feel free to e-mail PRT at or call (859) 257-1109.
