Peer Mentors Program

Choosing the right study abroad program or location can be daunting, but we're here to help guide you. In fact, we want you to hear it from students who have been in your shoes! Our Education Abroad Peer Mentors are on the front lines of our outreach efforts and you'll see them tabling around campus, talking in your classes, or providing 1-on-1 support here at our office!

They’ve been where you are before. They explored their options. They made the choice to study abroad. They found the program that aligned with their academic and professional goals. Now they want to share their wisdom with you. Meet with our Peer Advisors virtually or in person at Texas Global at the following times during the Summer 2024 semester: 

  • Mondays, 9:30-11 a.m. and 12:30-1 p.m.
  • Tuesdays, 9-11:30 a.m. and 2:30-3:30 p.m.
  • Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-2 p.m.
  • Fridays, 9:30-11 a.m. and 1-1:30 p.m.

Hi y’all! My name is Casey Pack and I am an outgoing Government major and incoming masters student at UT! I studied abroad in Australia after my Junior year, and it was one of the most transformative experiences of my college career. It opened lots of doors for me, and I am excited to talk more about it as a Peer Mentor!

Greetings, Longhorns~ I'm Lilly and I'm a rising senior! I studied in Seoul, South Korea in the Spring of 2023 and I have so much to share about my experience with the application process and savoring my precious time abroad. While I was abroad, I was able to build long-term friendships and become a helping hand for students interested in studying internationally. Please feel free to reach out and meet!
