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. 

Peer advising hours will not take place during the summer. The office will post fall hours closer to the start of the semester.

Which Advisor Should I Meet With? 


All advisors can generally advise on the various program types available to students. 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.
  *If you have questions about your application with the provider, you will want to contact the provider directly.
**Students looking at College/Departmental Exchanges
  should contact the primary contact listed on the program brochure for specific information. The above advisors only work with All Major Exchange programs.
