Peer Research Consultants 2019-2020: Home

About the PRCs

Peer Research Consultants staff the Research Desk in Roy O. West Library. They go through extensive training to learn how to best help other students with their own library research questions. When they feel like a librarian can best help someone, they'll recommend that the student make an appointment with a librarian.  The Research Desk schedule is available online.

Trip Apley

I am a junior at majoring in business administration & management. I am part of the Management Fellows and president of the Marketing Group@DePauw. Last summer I worked as an intern at the White House. I also have a small business that sells disposable/one-use reading glasses called SeeNow!. My claim to fame is I had an op-ed in the "Wall Street Journal" when I was in high school about the SAT. For my Prindle reading course, I am really enjoying reading the book "The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and the Blockchain Are Challenging the Global Economic Order" by Vigna, Paul, Casey, and Michael J., Picador. Also, I enjoy politics, Asian, Roman and Greek history, and golf.

Christian Rodriguez Hernandez

Hello, my name is Christian Rodriguez Hernandez and I am a Senior NY Posse Scholar. I am majoring in Sociology but I'm always interested in learning about topics outside of my discipline. I'm currently reading a lot about the Haitian Revolution and want to center my Honor Scholar thesis on that historical event.

I am currently reading Michelle Obama's book, "Becoming," although my favorite books are those with dragons. I hope to pursue a degree in landscape architecture in order to create public spaces that will help us adapt to climate change.
