Student 2 Student

Established in 2004, Student 2 Student (S2S) is a peer-to-peer student-led program that brings military and civilian students together to welcome new students, create a positive environment for all, support educational opportunities, build connections through service, and ease transitions.


The annual S2S Team of the Year competition recognizes S2S programs that provide exceptional peer support to new and current students, engage in service to their school and community, and create a sense of belonging for all students. S2S Teams accomplish this by:

  • Incorporating best practices for transitioning students
  • Participating in service projects
  • Providing peer-to-peer support for all students

Complete the Team of the Year application by Friday, May 31st (midnight CST).
