People Stories

Business environment

Recent UD graduate Radhika Samant always envisioned herself beginning her career in the environmental field but when she was offered a job to work at Thomson Reuters in New York City following Commencement, the opportunity was too good to pass up.

POW! peer educators serve as student representatives of Student Wellness and Health Promotion on campus-wide committees, plan wellness events on campus, and provide individual consultation to peers. 

Additionally, POW! peer educators are responsible for designing and presenting programs for residence halls and other University and non-University groups on a range of topics including, HIV/AIDS, smoking, stress management, eating disorders and body image. 

All new members of POW! will participate in general training April 12-14. Members can choose to receive additional training in subgroups. The two subgroups include About Body Image and Disordered Eating (ABIDE) or Sexual Understanding, Growth, Awareness and Responsibility (SUGAR).

Students who are interested in applying should visit the website and fill out the online application by March 8. Interviews will be conducted on March 11 and 18.
