Become a Peer Mentor
- Assist the SA office with promotional events, such as the SA Fair, distributing fliers and advertisement materials, Passport Drives or a SA table in the SAU on “club day.”
- Assist the SA office with SA student informational events, such as pre-departure meetings, re-entry workshops, etc.
- Share stories and experiences with everyone, and recommend SA to them.
- Serve as a contact to students who are interested in going abroad and provide a unique insight into what study abroad is like.
There are different levels of commitment that Peer Mentors can choose from:
- Low Level
- Serve as a point of contact for prospective students. Peer mentors are required to provide contact information for students to reach them if they have any questions about a program, country or general study abroad information.
- Medium Level
- On top of serving as a contact for students, peer mentors who have a little more time can choose to assist the SA office with our major events such as the Study Abroad Fair and Open Houses. Emails will be sent our prior to these events asking for volunteers.
- High Level
- Students interested in being heavily involved with the Study Abroad office can participate in various events that the office holds throughout the year. This includes major events as well as smaller meeting/events such as pre-departure, housing cluster events, and information sessions. Peer mentors with a high level of commitment can also assist in planning events, distribute flyers and promote office events and programs.
Being a Peer Mentor is something that lasts the entire year, and even into the summer if you are in Rochester and want to be a part of planning for the following year.
