Walk-In Peer Advising Hours with Alumni Ambassadors 


Don’t know where to start with your search? Have general questions about Education Abroad? Come to Pavilion 112 to talk to an Education Abroad Alumni Ambassador! Hear from peers who have studied abroad before and can help you navigate opportunities. 

Note: Peer advising is better suited for students looking for general information. If you already found the program you are interested in and/or applied to, you need to communicate with the program contact listed on your program brochure. Peer advisors will not be able to answer program specific questions.

Which Advisor Should I Meet With? 

All advisors can generally advice on the various program types available to students and funding opportunities.

HOWEVER, each advisor primarily works with certain program types and therefore has more knowledge about the particulars for that program type. When possible, we encourage students to meet with the appropriate advisor. You will still receive the basics and resources on next steps if you meet with a different advisor.
