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.
Who are the Peer Advisors?
My name is Amy Clark. I studied in Mexico for a summer and Spain for a semester, as well as volunteered in Ecuador! During my time abroad I loved connecting with locals in order to practice speaking Spanish. Other highlights included Spanish tapas and dancing to Reggaeton. I plan to move to Europe after graduation.
Hello! My name is Kerron Liggins and I am from Helena-West Helena, Arkansas. In summer 2019, I studied abroad in Ecuador studying Biology. Throughout my time in Ecuador, I also visited Quito, Yanayacu, Shiripuno, Bańos, Latacunga, and the Galápagos Islands. I earned the Gilman International Scholarship and would love to help anyone else earn this reward!
