New Faces Bring Fresh Perspective to Global Programs

• from Meisha Swaby

Meet the new GEO Peer Advisors! As the newest additions to the GEO team, Peer Advisors are able to offer a wide range of support to students who are interested in global experiences. The Peer Advisors are available to answer inquiries ranging from the beginning steps of studying abroad to personal insights about specific programs.

The Peer Advisors have participated in a variety of programs offered by GEO and have studied in a range of countries, such as Japan, Iceland, Spain, France, Morocco, Ireland, and South Korea, among others.  They are excited to advise students on the global opportunities that are available, as well as to share their personal study abroad experiences.
