Peer Advising Family Network (PAFN) (official website)

PAFN a peer mentoring program and is one of the largest and most diverse groups at the University of Virginia. It is  a pan-ethnic, multicultural  peer mentoring program that helps incoming Asian/Asian Pacific American students with their transition into college. This peer mentoring program is geared towards providing incoming students with advisors who serve as mentors as well as an excellent source of information on life at UVa.

Incoming 1st year and upperclass transfer students can apply to be a PAFN advisee during the summer prior to their arrival at UVa. Advisees are paired with an upperclass advisor and form a small “family” with a few other advisees. These students along with their families join other members of PAFN and get together for various activities and events throughout the year.
