Meet with a Study Abroad Peer Ambassador
The Office of Study Abroad has Peer Ambassadors, students who recently studied abroad, and are available to meet with you, answer general questions and give you an overview of the study abroad process. You are welcome to stop by for a quick question or a longer conversation. This is a great first step to learning more about study abroad options at Webster. Here is the Spring 2020 Peer Advising Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays-1pm to 3pm and on Wednesdays-12pm to 2pm, Peer Advising hours are held in Sverdrup, 111 (The Global Exchange Room). These are walk-in hours, so no appointment is needed.
