The Peer Leader Spotlight recognition is awarded monthly to students whom exhibit commitment to their respected peer leader group and service to the UofSC community. Steven Jaindl and Chelsea Coleburn were chosen for the month of September for their outstanding performance and commitment to being a Peer Leader in the Carolina community.
Steven Jaindl is a junior biology major from Spartanburg, SC. He is interested in all things health-related and has a true passion for getting involved on campus to make a positive difference. He first became involved with Changing Carolina Peer Leaders as a first-year, and since then, has held executive positions and served on various committees. Jaindl hopes to continue using his skills to not only better himself but the Gamecock community. Those who work with him at Campus Wellness say he has shown outstanding leadership and has showed great initiative.
Chelsea Coleburn is a junior mathematics major with a concentration in secondary education from Florence, SC. Since fall 2013, she has served as a Supplemental Instruction leader for pre-calculus and enjoys helping students with difficult topics and giving them study tips. This semester, she is also a peer leader for University 101 and a student assistant for Residential Curricular Initiatives, both working specifically with the Common Courses Program for first-year students. She loves being involved with the university because she gains experiences that she would not normally have inside the classroom. She also sees her involvement as an opportunity to meet new people and to learn more from others. Being a peer leader is important to her because she feels as if students deserve the peer-to-peer guidance that she at received in her time her at Carolina. She believes that students need to know about all of the resources the university has to offer to help them be a successful Gamecock.
