Peer Advisors Needed

The Office of International Education trains peer advisors each year to
make presentations on study abroad to students,  answer questions on study
abroad at the OIE table at the study abroad fair, man tables at the Tate
Center to promote study abroad and to take part in conference presentations
and other events where we are requested to bring students to share about
their study abroad experience. This spring we would like to find 2-4
students to be trained to become peer advisors for the remainder of the
spring, but primarily to help with the presentations that we do in the
fall. This is an unpaid position, but a great one for the experience and
your resume. And, of course, it helps to promote study abroad, which those
of you who have studied abroad usually enjoy doing! If you are interested
in becoming a peer advisor and are not graduating any sooner than May 2003,
please reply to this e-mail so that we can set up an appointment for your
training.

Student Quotes

-From a student studying in London, England

"One day I just took off to see London and "stumbled" upon several museums
(which were free admission) and many famous sights without even planning
anything. It is so easy to get around here (I love not having a car). I
never feel rushed and student discounts are offered everywhere."
