WORLD Peer Advisors

Your first step to studying abroad will be to drop in for a meeting with our Peer Advisors or email them for additional information. Peer advisors are students who have studied abroad. They can answer any questions you might have, provide you with guidance and get you started on figuring out where, when, and how you want to study abroad! 

During Spring 2024, you will find peer advisors at the WORLD table in the CUB (ground floor, near the coffee shop) during the following times:

  • Mondays - Meet with Zaikeria: 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
  • Tuesdays - Meet with Kaci: 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
  • Wednesdays - Meet with Courtney: 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
  • Thursdays - Meet with Anuket: 11:20 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.. 

Peer advising will not be available on university holidays or during school breaks. After your initial meeting with a Peer Advisor, you can meet with one of the WORLD staff members.
