Meet the Peer Advisors

Peer Advisors are members of the OGE student staff team who help answer initial questions, direct students to resources, and provide advice on the application process for study abroad. They serve as peer mentors on the process of choosing and applying to a study abroad program. They are available to give you advice on every aspect of the study abroad experience.
