PSU Peer Education came into being in 1994 largely through the efforts of psychology student Amy Patton, who approached Dr. Gary Grimaldi with the idea of forming a Bacchus & Gamma affiliated peer group that would use theatre as its primary form of presentation. Dr. Grimaldi enlisted J.T. Knoll, PSU Substance Abuse Counselor, and together they developed a training program. Not long afterward, Gorillas In Your Midst was selected as a name that conveyed the connection with PSU's mascot while denoting the mission of peer education.

Please contact Kelsey Lueck - Student Coordinator or J.T. Knoll at 620-235-4062 or by email at for more information. Or stop by our temporary office - 209 2nd floor Hartman.
