Education Abroad Peer Advisors

Thinking about studying abroad? Start the process by meeting with an Education Abroad Peer Advisor!

What is a Peer Advisor?

A Peer Advisor (PA) is a student who has previously studied abroad and who wishes to encourage other students to do the same. PAs offer an engaging student’s perspective on the whole process. A PA should be the first person that prospective Education Abroad participants meet with (the Education Abroad Advisor can help with more specific details later on). PAs offer advice on selecting a program and information about funding. They also conduct classroom visits and presentations at labor meetings in other departments.

Shahwar

Marhaba! It means hi in Turkish. My name is Shahwar and I am from Pakistan. I am a Junior majoring in Communication. I studied abroad in Istanbul, Turkey for a summer. One cool thing about me is that almost all of my friends are Nursing major even though I never studied Nursing.
