Peer Advisers

Our Study Abroad Peer Advisers 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.


Ask a Peer Adviser

Study Abroad Peer Advisers can help you research programs, look up classes, and give you general tips about studying and living overseas. Send them an email at 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 country where the Peer Adviser studied in order to talk with them.

NOTE: Students who meet with a Peer Adviser are still required to attend a Study Abroad group advising meeting and meet with a Study Abroad Adviser.

Kayla Brande
TU Gender, Health, and Social Justice in Ghana, Minimester 2017
TU Global Internships in Australia, Summer 2019
I am a senior Communication Studies major with a minor in Family studies. My first program abroad focused on gender, health, and social justice in Ghana. Going abroad allowed me to see a part of the world I would’ve never had the opportunity to visit. I came home with a new perspective from the unique experience I was fortunate enough to be involved in. This past summer I interned in Sydney, Australia working as an event planner at a five-star hotel. 

Jarkari Partlow
TU Marketing in the Shadow of the Bordeaux Vineyards Faculty-led Program in France, Minimester 2019
I am a senior, business administration major with a concentration in Finance and a minor in French. My study abroad experience focused on the marketing of wine in the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux, France. It was an amazing opportunity to revive my French speaking skill as well as build relationships with people that I most likely would have never met outside of this experience. I truly enjoyed being able to learn about something that interests me while exploring another part of the world. I am excited to encourage others to explore the opportunity to study abroad! 

Ali Maxwell
AIFS Study Abroad in London, Fall 2018
I am a senior studying Mass Communications, concentrating in Public Relations and Advertising, as well as minoring in Marketing and Music Industry. I’ve always wanted to visit London and felt like studying abroad there would be a perfect opportunity for me. I created so many memories with students from all over the world, as well as the US, and was able to participate in incredible experiences facilitated by the American Institute for Foreign Study. I can honestly say studying abroad was the best part of my college experience and hope to go abroad again soon.

Jillian Procope
TU Global Internships in London, Summer 2017
I am a senior studying a Mass Communications track in Public Relations with a minor in Creative Writing. During my time abroad I was fortunate enough to intern with a nonprofit organization in London. This opportunity allowed me to get firsthand work experience while simultaneously supporting my love for travel. I am always willing to talk about my own abroad experience, and I want to help anyone interested find a program that is the perfect fit for them!
