Our Study Abroad & Away Peer Advisors are current TU students who have already studied
abroad or away and now work in the TU Study Abroad & Away Office. They are eager to
share stories about their time abroad or away and can provide first-hand advice and
guidance before, during, and after your experience.

Study Abroad & Away Peer Advisors can help you research programs, look up classes,
and give you general tips about studying away or overseas. Send them an email at peeradvisor AT_TOWSON to ask a specific question or to make an appointment to meet with one of them. You
don’t have to be interested in the destination where the Peer Advisor studied or the
program they participated in to talk with them.
Hi! I am a senior in the Honors College majoring in Psychology and International Studies,
with minors in Religious Studies, Jewish Studies, and Asian Studies. I studied away
through the National Student Exchange program at the Universty of South Dakota in
the United States and participated in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Tel Abel
Beth Maacah Archaological Dig in Upper Galilee in Israel in Summer 2023. I have a
passion for learning about and understanding different cultures and have had the opportunity
to study both abroad and away! Traveling to different places within the U.S. or overseas
is eye-opening and can be affordable. If given the chance, I encourage everyone to
explore the world beyond our TU campus!
Hi everyone! I am a sophomore majoring in International Business, and I am minoring
in Italian and Business Law. I participated in the TU Italian Language and Culture
in Venice, Italy faculty-led program in Minimester 2023. Studying abroad helped me
improve my skills in speaking Italian, and build friendships that have continued back
at Towson. I’m excited to help other students study abroad and create amazing memories!
Hello! I am currently a junior majoring in Social Science with a minor in Spanish.
I participated in the TU Spanish Language in Spain faculty-led program in Summer 2022
and the TU Blacks in Great Britain: From Liverpool to London, UK faculty-led program
in Minimester 2023. I am fascinated with learning languages and after I learn Spanish
I hope to learn French and Italian. I have always wanted to study abroad but never
had the right resources (financial or opportunities) to make it happen. It wasn't
until I had a study abroad information meeting where the advisors helped me with financial
assistance and made sure I had all the resources I needed for me to be comfortable
with my time abroad. Studying abroad in Spain was a unique and great opportunity that
I am glad I took advantage of. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity
Hi, I am Ryan! I participated in the AIFS Abroad Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany
in Fall 2022. I'm currently a senior majoring in Business Administration and Management
with a focus in international business. I love traveling to new places and experiencing
new cultures and environments. The time I spent studying abroad in Germany was one
of the greatest experiences I've ever been able to participate in and I hope to ensure
my peers have the opportunity to participate in similar life-changing activities.
