Peer Counselors

Each year, the Office of Overseas Study employs undergraduate study abroad returnees from a variety of study abroad programs. Peer Counselors are responsible for staffing our main office from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the Fall and Spring semester, and work at our information table in various locations on the Bloomington campus four days a week. Our peer counselors are also available for on-campus presentations, tabling and student returnee panels.

We encourage students to contact Peer Counselors via e-mail for information or visit them during their office hours.
