Education Abroad Peer Advisors

Thinking about studying abroad? Start the process by meeting with an Education Abroad Peer Advisor. Our amazing CIE Peer Advisor team is available Monday-Thursday 6-8 in Woods-Penn 207!

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?

Amy Clark

Amy Clark

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.

Kerron Liggins

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!
