Washington University Student Associates (WUSAs – pronounced “woo-sas”) are upper class student leaders who assist new students with their academic, social, and personal transition to Washington University. They serve as orientation leaders during Bear Beginnings and then they serve as peer mentors for the student’s entire first year. Their primary duties are to remind residents about academic deadlines, policies, and resources and to help build community among first-year residential floors or transfer and exchange student groups.
