ePEERS Offers Advice, Friendship and Support to Students
College students often deal with difficult issues on their own because they don’t know where to turn for constructive advice. ePEERS is a social network created exclusively for college students. Unlike other social platforms, this restricted site allows them to create a safe, judgment-free atmosphere.
President Joe Purisky explains ePEERS was initially funded by nonprofit organizations and is free for students. It was founded on the principle that whatever students are facing or trying to accomplish, someone else probably has firsthand knowledge that can help. College students must juggle a lot of issues, from academics and sports to faith, anxiety, illness and depression. Through ePEERS, students can seek and give advice (even anonymously), share past experiences and gain friendship. Abuse and bullying is not tolerated on ePEERS. Plus, students have access to mental health tools on ePEERS.
