Our Study Abroad Peer Advisors are current TU students who have already studied abroad and now work in the TU Study Abroad Office. They are eager to share stories about their time abroad and can provide first-hand advice and guidance before, during, and after your study abroad experience.
WE ARE HIRING FOR FALL 2014!
All current students abroad and returning students are welcome to apply for a Peer Advisor position in our office. An email invitation will be sent in early March. For more information please contact Associate Director Kelly Holland at email@example.com.

Meet our Peer Advisors
Amy Procaccini GlobaLinks – Bond University
“I am a junior majoring in Mass Communications and minoring in EMF. I love the beach so it was only fitting that I spent a semester in Australia! I traveled up and down the east coast of Australia and went to Fiji and New Zealand while I was there. Studying abroad opened my eyes to trying anything and everything, which helped me learn a lot about myself. It’s safe to say I have officially caught the travel bug and I now spend most of my free time trying to find ways to visit new places. Studying abroad is definitely the best decision I’ve made in my college career!”
Kelly Rudolph ISA - Salamanca
"I am a junior double-majoring in Communications and Spanish. Learning the Spanish language and culture has been a passion of mine since I was in elementary school; however, nothing I learned in all my years of school can compare to my semester abroad. I wasn’t just learning while I was in Spain, I was experiencing. I finally was able to see and do things that previously I could only dream of. A word of warning: once you come back from studying abroad, you WILL want to go again! Besos!"
Melissa Stoker TU Chinese Culture Yesterday and Today
"I am a senior majoring in International Studies with a minor in Chinese as well as Business, Communication, and Liberal Arts. I’m also a president of the Towson University Belly Dance Club (Rising Tigress Belly Dance). I love learning about different cultures and perspectives and study abroad was the perfect opportunity to do just that. Studying abroad in China gave me the opportunity to experience how people go about life outside of the Western world. Even with only a month abroad, I got a taste of traveling and can’t wait to sample more. By the way, it’s true what Disney World tells you, it is a small world after all."
Will Weise Semester at Sea
“I am a junior studying Business Marketing. There is
so much around the world that I wanted to see and do and
I just couldn’t pick one place so Semester at Sea was
the perfect fit for me. I spent my semester traveling to
over 16 countries throughout Europe, Africa, South
America, and the Caribbean. It was such an incredible
experience to step outside my comfort zone and to truly
see the world for what it is while still learning so
much about myself at the same time. It has made me want
to do more with my life and want to have an impact on
the world. It made me want to change the world and was
one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life."
