Education Abroad - Peer Advisors

User Image

Peer Advisors are a group of returning study abroad students with separate and distinct geographical areas of expertise. As representatives of the Education Abroad office, they provide initial advising on education or interning abroad including but not limited to general information on programs, scholarships, and the application process. Peer Advisors strive to promote study abroad to students, faculty and groups from all areas of the academic spectrum. They are the initial contact to create a bridge to students to make study abroad accessible to a greater range of students. They want to make our presence known to the student body through active outreach in classrooms, meetings, and one-on-one advising sessions.
