Peer Advisers

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.

Ask a Peer Advisor

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 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.

NOTE: Students who meet with a Peer Advisor are still required to attend a Study Abroad & Away group advising session and meet with a Study Abroad & Away Advisor.

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 as well!

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.
