UVA’s Peer Advising Family Network (PAFN) is a peer mentoring organization affiliated with the Office of the Dean of Students at the University of Virginia. Our goal is to help smooth the transition to college for incoming Asian and Asian-American students. We do this by setting up a family system, where two upperclassmen serve as mentors for a small group of incoming students. They provide advice about university life ranging from academics to relationships, almost acting as parents. The incoming students, or children, form lifelong bonds with their parents and their fellow siblings. Furthermore, each family is placed into a larger family (P, A, F, or N family) where two board members serve as family heads or as grandparents. Therefore, PAFN is an organization where incoming and returning students create a dynamic-family system that provides a chain of support for all those involved.
