Zac Shields

Senior Peer Advisor in Lawrence, Kansas

Visit my website


When I'm not hanging out with my two cats, I'm a rising Senior studying History and Political Science at KU. Most of my time is spent helping students and other guests at the Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC), where I co-lead the Peer Advisor team with Cora Burgoyne. As Communications Student Assistant at the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics, I work to encourage civic engagement and bipartisan political awareness on KU's campus.

I sing with KU Men's Glee, march as a Clarinet in the Marching Jayhawks, participate in Lawrence Civic Choir, serve as a Worship Leader with the church of which I am a part, do amateur photography, attend as much live theatre as I can afford, and spend far more time in movie theaters than I should. I'm a gamer--mostly real-time-strategy and turn-based-strategy games for those who care to know!

After graduation, I plan to work in state or federal government or in higher education (advising is a pretty great gig).

Thanks for taking the time to read my page! Don't hesitate to drop by the UAC anytime during the work week! The staff and Peer Advisor team are truly phenomenal.
