Peer Mentor Program

To more effectively disseminate valuable information regarding the major, the Yale College Dean Office has established an informal peer mentoring system. Peer mentors are juniors and seniors in a major selected and trained to convey advice and information to their peers, as a way of increasing and diversifying mentoring resources within majors. Peer mentors meet with prospective and current majors to provide advice and information regarding Economics. They can answer questions about what it’s like to major in Economics, what classes you may wish to take in the major, how you find a research opportunity, and so on. Occasionally, mentors will hold community-building events in the major and participate in the academic fairs for first- and second-year students.

First- and second-year students are encouraged to contact any of the peer mentors with questions about Economics and to attend their events.

Please note that peer mentors may not sign schedules or any other official Yale College forms.

Ayumi Sudo

Ayumi Sudo

Ayumi is a senior in Pauli Murray from Tokyo. During middle and high school, she thought she would study humanities/political science in college - she had no idea that she would be majoring in Economics and Mathematics. However, taking introductory micro and game theory in her first year (while enrolling in Directed Studies), she was fascinated by the capacity of economics to analyze human interactions using mathematical models, and has loved it ever since! She has also been involved with economics research since her sophomore year and is interested in a variety of themes including labor, macro, and political economics. Please feel free to ask her any questions about economics/math classes, how to get started with research, or any questions that you may have related to the major! Even if she may not be able to answer your questions, she may be able to point you to someone who can.
